DUI CheckPoint Inglis

On Friday, September 2, 2011, the Levy County Sheriff’s Office, together with Inglis and Chiefland Police Departments with equipment borrowed from the City of Williston, conducted a DUI Checkpoint in Inglis as part of the National “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” Campaign. This campaign was to reduce and eliminate impaired driving on our roadways. During this 3-hour road block they stopped 73 vehicles and issued 13 total citations with one being for open container. Although no DUI arrests were made, this collaborative agency approach to DUI enforcement will be the first of many for 2011. This team approach makes cost effective impaired driving enforcement a reality in these tough economic times.
