A DWI checkpoint will be set up sometime during the month of August in Morgan County. Captain Michael Turner, of the Highway Patrol, says the checkpoint is to be at a pre-determined location and conducted for the sole purpose of determining if motorists are impaired by alcohol or other drugs. Preliminary statistics indicate almost 25 percent of the 870 people killed in Missouri traffic crashes in 2015 were alcohol-related. All efforts will be made to keep the checkpoint in Morgan County as brief as possible. The process, however, will take longer for those suspected of being under the influence.
