The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a sobriety check lane from 11 p.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. Sunday in Douglas County.
Officers will target impaired drivers and monitor compliance with all Kansas traffic laws.
Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman, said the sobriety check lane is part of the Impaired Driving Deterrence Program, a partnership of local law enforcement agencies and the Kansas Traffic Safety Resource Office.
The partnership is aimed at reducing the number of traffic deaths, injuries and the cost of property damage. The sheriff’s office typically does not identify where it will set up the check lane.
