Pueblo County Sheriff's Office Conducts Sobriety Checkpoint

The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office along with the State Patrol is conducting two sobriety checkpoints this summer.

The first was Friday night.

The checkpoint serves as a reminder to everyone that identifying intoxicated drivers is a high priority for law enforcement. Drivers passing through the checkpoint will be given educational materials about the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The exact location of the checkpoints will not be released ahead of time, but deputies say it will be northwest of the city limits.

Motorists are reminded that following directions, having your seat belt on, and avoiding using your cell phones while in the checkpoint line will get drivers through the line faster.
