Troopers check for impaired drivers during
a sobriety checkpoint in Citrus County.

On July 25, FHP’s Troop C hosted a comprehensive roadside sobriety checkpoint on US Hwy 19 in Citrus County with partners Citrus County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco. Thanks to the extra manpower, law enforcement was able to check every motorist traveling along this stretch of roadway from 7:00 PM to1:00 AM, removing drunk drivers and making the roadways of Citrus County that much safer!

During the checkpoint, law enforcement officers checked 635 vehicles, issuing 26 citations for traffic violations, three arrests for DUI, and 18 arrests for other criminal offenses. FHP troopers were proud to support this and other DUI enforcement efforts to curb drinking and driving, reduce property damage, and prevent injuries and deaths in among motorists in Florida.
