Lebanon Police Department will be conducting high visibility impaired driver counter-measures this weekend.
Officers are planning checkpoint(s) on Highway 70 and / or Highway 231 on Friday, May 17. In addition, they will be conducting saturation patrols.
We'll be monitoring for DUIs while enforcing traffic violations and other offenses. The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed or injured in alcohol or drug related crashes, said Lt. Brent Willett. Officers will be observing drivers who pass through the checkpoint(s) looking for signs of impairment.
