OSD begins traffic checkpoints

March 27, 2013

To combat crime and traffic violations, Oconee Sheriff’s Department has begun license checkpoints in various parts of the county. They began last Friday, and Chief Deputy Kevin Davis predicts these checkpoints will set up about two or three times a month. The Sheriff’s office, aware that 23 traffic fatalities occurred in 2012, is interested in curbing accidents. According to Davis, a by-product of the checkpoints is a greater presence of officers in neighborhood communities. If you approach a checkpoint, public information officer Jimmy Watt says drivers should produce a valid license, proof of insurance, and valid vehicle registration.
