COLUMBIA — The Boone County Sheriff’s Department said Monday that it would conduct a driver’s license and car insurance checkpoint sometime this week.
The checkpoint will be conducted during daylight hours at a location chosen based on the number of related citations in the area, according to a news release from the Boone County Sheriff’s Department.
Motorists will be asked to present their driver’s licenses and proof of car insurance, and those in compliance can expect minimal delay, according to the release.
From May 1, 2010 to May 1 of this year, the Sheriff’s Department cited 351 people for operating a motor vehicle with a suspended or revoked license. They also cited 134 people for operating a vehicle without a valid driver’s license and 500 for failing to present proof of insurance, according to the release.
The checkpoint is funded by a grant from the Missouri Department of Transportation Division of Highway Safety.
