If you plan to enjoy this weekend with a few beers and cocktails, be sure to have a designated driver before you head out.
The Kennett Police Department and the Southeast Missouri DWI Task Force in partnership with the MoDOT Highway Safety Office will be cracking down on impaired drivers.
According to a news release from Lt. Tim Trowbridge, public information officer for KPD, officers will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint.
They’ll be looking for anyone driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Trowbridge added that driving while intoxicated is one of the most common violent crimes, killing or injuring someone in Missouri every 1.7 hours.
