MURRAY — The Calloway County Sheriff’s Office will periodically be conducting traffic safety checkpoints throughout the county to check motorists for compliance with motor vehicle laws including driving under the influence laws.
CCSO utilizes these checkpoints to promote safety for motorists using the public roadways and to provide a deterrent for those who violate the laws contained in the Kentucky Revised Statutes. CCSO said that the intent of a checkpoint is to provide for high visibility, public safety service, focusing on vehicular equipment deficiencies, confirming proper registration and insurance of vehicles and valid licensing of drivers. Violations of law or other public safety issues that arise shall be addressed.
This will allow CCSO the opportunity to periodically concentrate its efforts in checking for violations of state traffic and regulatory laws that will ultimately increase the safety of the citizens. Drivers encountering a checkpoint are requested to have their operator’s license, vehicle registration receipt and proof of vehicle insurance readily accessible. Drivers with this information in hand, those with no violations of law and minimal roadway congestion can expect short delays at the checkpoint locations.
