A program to identify intoxicated drivers will be conducted this month by the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office and the Kansas Highway Patrol.
Officers will conduct a sobriety checkpoint near De Soto in the late evening hours of Friday, May 4, into the early morning hours of Saturday, May 5.
Drivers suspected of being intoxicated will be given brief sobriety tests and those drivers who are confirmed to be impaired will be arrested.
Efforts will be made not to severely interrupt the flow of traffic. Citizen’s patience and cooperation will assist with this important safety effort.
