ENDUI Checkpoint Advisory

ENDUI Checkpoint and Patrols Planned for Broken Arrow

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is partnering with the Broken Arrow Police Department, Tulsa Police Department, Tulsa County Sheriff's Office and the Oklahoma ABLE Commission to conduct a checkpoint and saturation patrols in the county.

The checkpoint will begin at 10 PM Friday, Aug. 24 and last until 3 AM Saturday, Aug. 25. During this time, officers from the surrounding towns will be increasing patrols to be on the lookout for impaired drivers.

There is absolutely no reason for impaired driving collisions to happen. If you are drinking, have a plan to get home safe.

In 2017, 656 people were killed in crashes in Oklahoma; almost half of those (324) were killed in drug/alcohol-related crashes. This is up from 43 percent killed in drug/alcohol-related crashes in 2016 in Oklahoma.
