(KMOV) -- The Jefferson County Council has turned down a $22,000 grant from the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission that would have funded drunk-driving checkpoints and road-side safety checks.

The grant was not taken because of constitutional issues.

According to one member on the council, residents have complained about how they were treated after being stopped at check-points.

News 4’s Russell Kinsaul is looking into the issue and will have more on News 4 at 5.
