The Huntsville Police Department’s DUI Task Force will conduct traffic safety checkpoints throughout the weekend. If you are stopped at a traffic safety checkpoint, be prepared to present your driver’s license, proof of insurance and vehicle registration to officers.

The checkpoints help deter impaired driving and encourage drivers to obey all traffic laws to keep everyone safe on the roadways.

If you suspect a driver is impaired, please contact HPD’s non-emergency line at 256-722-7100. When you call, please provide the location, vehicle and driver description, and the vehicle’s direction of travel. If there is immediate danger to the public, call 911.

• Jordan Lane/Sparkman Drive
