The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office will conduct two DUI Checkpoints this weekend.
The locations will not be released, but the hours of operation are Friday, May 28, 2010, from 10:00 p.m. to midnight, and Saturday, May 29, 2010, from 12:30 a.m. to 3:30 a.m.
Motorists will recognize the checkpoint operation by the staging of appropriate signs, warning devices and the presence of uniformed law enforcement personnel.
All law enforcement agencies in Sarasota County made 1,286 DUI arrests in all of 2009.
“Impaired drivers kill, plain and simple,” said Sheriff Tom Knight. “This is a serious threat to the safety of Sarasota County residents, so we are committed to keeping drivers that are under the influence off our roads.”
