Officers of the Hays Police Department will conduct a sobriety checkpoint Saturday in the 600 block of East 13th. The check lane will be between 11:45 p.m. and 2:45 a.m.

The purpose of the lane is to improve safety by identifying impaired drivers and removing them from the roadway. Motorists suspected of driving under the influence will be given on-site sobriety tests.

Efforts will be made to minimize the interruption of traffic flow, but many drivers will be stopped as part of this program.

This event is conducted in accordance with the Kansas Department of Transportation Impaired Driving Deterrence Program.
