The Garden City Police Department will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint in a high traffic areas within the city limits Saturday night.

The sobriety checkpoint is designed to identify intoxicated drivers and remove them from the streets of Garden City. Vehicles traveling through the checkpoint may be stopped and officers will work to minimize the interruption of normal traffic flow for those drivers who are not intoxicated.

The cost of the checkpoint is covered through the Impaired Driving Deterrence Program grant given by the Kansas Department of Transportation.
