Traffic Safety Checkpoint held‏
Wednesday, June 8, 2011

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announced that the Sheriff’s Department will be conducting a traffic safety checkpoint in the area of Rauch-Meetze Road and Dutch Fork Road on June 11, 2011 between 7:00 PM and 11:00 PM.

The Sheriff stated that the checkpoint is designed to change driver’s behavior’s and reduce traffic collisions and fatalities in our communities – making everyone be a defensive driver, to wear their seatbelts and to slow down. The Sheriff added that the traffic safety checkpoint is an effort to reduce speeding in the area and reduce impaired driving. Sheriff Leon Lott added that driving under the influence will not be tolerated and citizens need to make arrangements to have a designated driver or call a taxi -- the risk to the community is not worth it and you could end up in jail.

The Richland County Sheriff’s Department’s Traffic Safety Unit can provide education and awareness to communities, church groups and businesses; in addition to conducting traffic safety checkpoints and working our roadways to make our communities safer for our children.
