DUI Checkpoints in KC - December 23rd, 24th, 25th

Holiday Weekend DUI Checkpoints in Kansas City
by Kansas City News

Well, the holiday weekend is upon us, and with it comes the police.  Kansas City's finest will be out in full force over the holiday weekend on December 23rd, 24th and 25th.  Please try not to drink too much if you're going to drive this weekend - nothing would put a damper on the holiday weekend than a DUI and a few hours in jail.

DUI charges are no longer easy to deal with.  In the old days, as our old friend and retired lawyer Robert A. would tell you, you could get 4 or 5 DUI convictions and still have a license.  Today, you are pretty much allowed 1 DUI, and even 1 is going to suck.  You're talking about spending the night in jail, possibly having your car impounded for up to 1 year, losing your license, paying around $1500 total (not including the lawyer), going to traffic school, and then finally going on probation for about 2 years.  Sound fun?  Well then stay home if you're going to drink this weekend, because they WILL be setting up checkpoints.

Common DUI checkpoint areas in Kansas City include anywhere along Southwest Trafficway, anywhere along Ward Parkway but particularly at 79th Street or 77th Street.  There will be checkpoints somewhere along Wornall Road, most commonly around 75th Street, or as far south as 93rd Street just as you round the corner to head south to the stoplight at 95th street.
