Sobriety checkpoint set for Labor Day weekend

The Hardin County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on South Main in Kenton on from 8 p.m. until 1 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

The checkpoint is part of “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” high visibility traffic enforcement initiative covering the busy Labor Day weekend. A fatality occurs every 34 minutes in the U.S. during Labor Day weekend.

Sheriff Keith Everhart pointed out that highway safety data indicates
that highly visible enforcement campaigns reduce drunk-driving fatalities by
as much as 20%.   

He said, "It's our goal to have an unmistakable presence, ready to arrest drunk drivers who put lives at risk.”
