St. Louis County Police to conduct sobriety checkpoints in November

(KMOV.com) -- Officers with St. Louis County Police will be conducting various sobriety and safety checkpoints on St. Louis streets and highways.

The officers participating in the enforcement have additional training in the recognition of motorists who have had too much to drink or are under the influence of illegal drugs. 
 
In addition to drunk driving and impaired driving, officers will also issue citations for seat belt and other violations.
