Traffic Safety Checkpoints- Click It Or Ticket
Published on May 31, 2018
The Huntsville Police Department D.U.I. Task Force will be conducting Traffic Safety Checkpoints beginning Friday night through this weekend. If you are stopped at a Traffic Safety Checkpoint be prepared to present your driver license, proof of insurance and vehicle tag registration to the officers. The Task Force utilizes data provided by NASO (North Alabama Safety Office) that determines traffic accident hotspots across the city. There are 57 designated hotspots throughout Huntsville and they will be conducting checkpoints at one or more of those locations. In addition to the Traffic Safety Checkpoint, The Click-It-or-Ticket Campaign will also be on going through June 3. Failure to buckle up is still a contributing factor in traffic fatalities and motorists are encouraged to buckle up.
The D.U.I. Task Force uses Traffic Safety Checkpoints to help detect and deter impaired driving.
