The Florida Highway Patrol is planning a roadside sobriety safety checkpoint tonight in Santa Rosa County.
The checkpoint will begin about 9:30 p.m. and end at 12:30 a.m. Saturday on Highway 90 west of Avalon Boulevard. Warning devices will be placed in strategic locations leading up to the checkpoint for the safety and protection of motorist and officers. During the operation, vehicles will be stopped to check for driver impairment and other violations of Florida law.
“Sobriety checkpoints have been successful in the past and it is anticipated this operation will be a success,” the FHP said in a media release. “The Florida Highway Patrol encourages motorist not to drink and drive. Please select a designated driver if your plans include alcohol.”
