The Olathe Police Department will conduct a DUI Check Lane from 11 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21.
During the course of this check lane, all motorists in the designated area will be stopped and contacted in an effort to look for signs of impairment. Those drivers who are in violation of the intoxicating liquor laws will be arrested. Motorists will also be checked for valid driver’s licenses.

These check lanes are made possible by mutual aide efforts between local
Johnson County Municipal agencies, the Johnson County Sheriff and the Kansas Highway Patrol.
Educational literature regarding drinking and driving will be disseminated.
The Olathe Police Department, along with surrounding agencies, will continue to operate check lanes in an effort to educate the public and remove intoxicated drivers from the roadways.
