Twenty-two are arrested at Springfield checkpoints sparton
Updated: 2013-10-29 10:07:38
The Springfield Police Department, in conjunction with, the Greene Co. Sheriff’s Office, conducted two sobriety checkpoints October 26-27, 2013. The first checkpoint was conducted at the intersection of South Avenue and Harrison Street. It was closed, and a second checkpoint was conducted at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and Olive Street.

Of the total of 589 motorists contacted during the four hours the checkpoints were in operation, a total of 22 were arrested with 18 drivers caught driving while intoxicated; one, a minor, in possession of alcohol; two for possession of misdemeanor drugs and one for having an outstanding warrant. Two summonses were issued for other traffic violations.

The checkpoint was funded through a grant from the Missouri Department of Transportation, Division of Highway Safety.

If you drink and drive, you lose

Even though the consequences of drunk driving include jail time, loss of driving privileges, sentencing to use ignition interlocks and increased insurance rates and financial losses include attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work and the potential loss of a job, people don't seem to get that drunk driving is not worth the consequences.
