From the Missouri State Highway Patrol:

DWI Checkpoints in MissouriMotorists will be contacted for the limited purpose of determining if they are impaired by alcohol or other drugs. All efforts will be made to keep the process as brief as possible. If the officer suspects a driver to be under the influence of intoxicants and/or drugs, they will be asked to submit to a field sobriety test(s).

In 2015, 872 people were killed in traffic crashes on Missouri roadways. Preliminary statistics indicate almost one-fourth of these deaths were a result of impaired driving. Sobriety checkpoints are just one method the Missouri State Highway Patrol utilizes to combat preventable injury and death caused by impaired drivers.

Captain Ridens said, “Driving while impaired continues to be a major contributing factor of traffic crashes in Missouri, and we are committed to protect the public from these drivers.”

The exact dates and times of the DWI checkpoints have not been announced, but when we see them they will be posted on our free mobile app.
