Checkpoint Advisory: Activities Planned Across Oklahoma

ENDUI Checkpoint Advisory

Sobriety Checkpoints and Patrols Planned Across Oklahoma for NYE

The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO) and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) are teaming up with nearly 100 law enforcement agencies across Oklahoma to combat impaired driving this New Year's Eve.

The goal is simple: to make Oklahoma as safe as possible by getting impaired drivers off the roads. Additional deputies, officers, and troopers will be on duty looking for impaired drivers across the the state before, during, and after any checkpoints.

During the New Year’s holiday last year, there were a total of 374 crashes in Oklahoma. Five of these crashes were fatal, resulting in the deaths of five people. Two of the people killed were in alcohol/drug-related crashes.

Of the 374 crashes during the 2018 NYE period, 45 were alcohol and/or drug-related. This means that more than 12 percent of the holiday crashes on Oklahoma roads involved a potentially impaired driver
