COLUMBIA — The Columbia Police Department will conduct a safety checkpoint between May 5 and May 11 during daylight hours.
Drivers who encounter the checkpoint will be asked to present their driver's license and proof of motor vehicle insurance. Law-abiding drivers should expect minimal delay, according to a news release from the Police Department.
The checkpoint is meant to monitor those driving with driver's licenses that have been suspended or revoked. Police will also look for people driving without a driver's license or insurance, as well as drivers and passengers not wearing seat belts, according to the release.
Police have chosen the checkpoint location based on crash data, according to the news release.
