Huntsville Police Department to enforce DUI laws during 4th of July weekend

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The Huntsville Police Department will be proactive in enforcing Alabama DUI laws over this July 4th holiday period.

The department received grant enforcement money provided by the Northeast Alabama Traffic Safety Office (N.A.T.S.O.) allowing officers to set up traffic safety checkpoints.

"Our officers are highly motivated by the importance of this mission," said Sgt. Jeffery B. Rice Sr., the supervisor of the DUI Task Force.

Using crash data from the State of Alabama Critical Analysis Reporting Environment (C.A.R.E.) data program, the Huntsville Police Department's DUI Traffic Task Force will be setting up announced and unannounced random safety check points.

When driving up on a safety checkpoint, citizens will be asked for a current driver's license, proof of insurance and vehicle registration.

Additionally, seat belt compliance for both the drivers and all passengers will be checked.

Locations for these holiday checkpoints through July 4th will be:
• Winchester Road at Moores Mill Road
• Drake Avenue at Newsom Road
• Drake Avenue at Chasewood Drive
• Pulaski Pike at Sparkman Drive
• Bob Wallace Avenue at Leeman Ferry Road
• Andrew Jackson Way at Ward Avenue
• Jordan Lane (SR-53) at Sparkman Drive
• Old Monrovia Road at Providence Main
