The Utah County Sheriff's Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Halloween in an effort to make the roads in Utah County safer.

The Utah County Sheriff's Office hopes to make it less scary to drive on Halloween this year! Being involved in a DUI crash can be one of the most tragic things a family can ever experience. Deputies, with assistance from the Utah Highway Safety Office, will conduct a sobriety checkpoint beginning at 10:00 PM on October 31, 2015. The checkpoint is scheduled to operate until 3:00 AM on November 1, 2015. The purpose of the checkpoint is to deter impaired driving. Drivers who come through the checkpoint will be asked if they have consumed anything that might impair their ability to drive safely. For most drivers the entire encounter will last less than a minute. If Deputies see indicators of impairment they will investigate further. The checkpoint will be on SR-114 (Geneva Road), mile marker 4.

If you participate in a Halloween costume party, and choose to drive while impaired, you will join OUR after party. We will reserve a seat for you in jail and the cost to you will be only $10,000!
