Missouri Saturation Results

The Missouri Highway Patrol has released results of a weekend DWI saturation checkpoint.  The checkpoint was conducted Sunday in Clinton County.
Troop H commanding officer, Captain Duane Robinson says the location of the saturation was selected due to an elevated number of alcohol-related traffic crashes and impaired drivers.
On Sunday, officers issued tickets for two speed violations, and individual tickets for a seat belt violation, child restraint violation, non-moving violation, uninsured motorist, felony warrant arrest and another felony arrest. 
Officers issued 23 warnings during the checkpoint.  Captain Robinson says he is pleased none of the drivers stopped for traffic violations were intoxicated.  He says removing impaired drivers from the highways is a priority for the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
