Beckley Police will conduct a DUI Sobriety Checkpoint from 8 p.m. tonight through 2 a.m. Saturday on W.Va. 3 at South Fayette Street near Beaver Avenue. An alternate location will be U.S. 19.
The checkpoint will be supported by roving DUI Enforcement Patrols throughout the evening and nighttime hours.

The purpose of the DUI Checkpoint is to deter impaired driving and to increase awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving. The Beckley Police Department and Southern Regional Highway Safety Program encourage the motoring public to drive safely and designate a sober driver if consuming alcohol.
The DUI Checkpoint will be funded by the SRHSP.
