PALM HARBOR – In an effort to reduce DUI related injuries, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of various other law enforcement agencies, will conduct a sobriety checkpoint this weekend.

The checkpoint will be at 31975 U.S. 19 N. in Palm Harbor. The Sheriff’s Office will be diverting northbound traffic from U.S. 19 N.

The checkpoint will begin at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, until 4 a.m. Saturday, Oct., 19.

At the checkpoint, Patrol, Community Policing and Narcotics deputies will be on the lookout for alcohol and drug impaired drivers. Members of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Crash Investigations Unit, the Sheriff’s Citizen Patrol and Explorer Post 900 will assist with non-enforcement related tasks. Along with impaired drivers, deputies will be looking for driver license, registration, insurance, and equipment violations. The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Mobile Command Bus will be used for breath testing and the processing of arrested individuals.

This Friday’s checkpoint is dedicated to Yvonne Myers. On June 18, 1992, 18-year-old Myers left her home to meet her friends at the movies. She got into a car with her friend Matt, who was driving. Matt had been drinking and was impaired. Matt ran a red light at U.S. 19 and Drew Street and was struck by a car passing through the intersection. Yvonne, who was in the front passenger seat, was flown to a local hospital and died from her injuries.

For more information about the sobriety checkpoints, call Capt. Paul Halle of the Special Operations Division at 727-582-6200 or the Sheriff’s Public Information Office at 582-6221.
