Sobriety Checkpoints Planned Across Oklahoma

ENDUI Checkpoint Advisory

Multiple Sobriety Checkpoints
Planned Across Oklahoma

Starting soon, Oklahoman's and out-of-state travelers will hit the roads for the Labor Day weekend. Some will head to the lakes and rivers, others to destinations in other states. One thing is for sure, people will be drinking alcohol this weekend.

That's why almost 100 law enforcement agencies are teaming up across the state; to make sure nobody drives under the influence, and everyone gets home safe. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the ENDUI team will conduct two sobriety checkpoints this weekend.

The first checkpoint will be on Friday, Aug. 30 in Norman. The checkpoint will be conducted with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Norman Police Department, and the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office. The checkpoint will start at 11 p.m. and end at 2 a.m. Saturday. Law enforcement will be out on patrol before, during, and after the checkpoint all across Cleveland County looking for impaired drivers.

The second ENDUI checkpoint will take place on Saturday, Aug. 31 in Tulsa. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol will be joined by the Tulsa Police Department, Tulsa County Sheriff's Office, and the Oklahoma ABLE Commission. The checkpoint will start at 10 p.m. and will end at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 1.
