GILBERT - On Friday, beginning at 6 p.m., members of the West Virginia State Police will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint along U.S. Route 52 in Gilbert.

The checkpoint will last until midnight, on the same date. The primary purpose of the checkpoint is to educate the motoring public about the effects of driving impaired either by alcohol, drugs, or both. Furthermore, the checkpoint would act as a deterrent for impaired driving.

During the checkpoint, drivers will be checked for any other traffic infractions as well. This project is funded through the Commission on Drunk Driving Prevention.
