In an effort to combat the continual problem of motorists driving while intoxicated, the Belton Police Department will conduct a sobriety checkpoint. It is scheduled for this Friday or Saturday night, September 12th or 13th 2014. The checkpoint will be conducted between the hours of 9:00 pm and 2:00 am, at a location yet to be determined. Those motorists contacted will be asked for a driver’s license and insurance and those drivers determined to have been drinking will be detained for further investigation. The slight delay encountered to motorists prevents intoxicated drivers from continuing and possibly injuring or killing others. The department appreciates your patience in this endeavor.
