A sobriety checkpoint is planned in Texas County sometime in March, the Missouri State Highway Patrol announced this week.

Sobriety checkpoints and DWI saturations are part of the patrol’s efforts to remove careless and intoxicated drivers from Missouri’s highways, the organization said. They are conducted at various locations that have been found to experience a higher than normal number of alcohol-related contacts, hazardous driving contacts and traffic crashes.

“The use of sobriety checkpoints and DWI saturations enable the Missouri State Highway Patrol to enhance our efforts in removing drugged and intoxicated drivers from our roadways,” said Capt. Dwayne F. Isringhausen, commanding officer of Troop G, Willow Springs. “Please, never drink and drive.”
