The Oklahoma Highway Patrol ENDUI team will partner with law enforcement from across Oklahoma to set up DUI checkpoints over New Year’s Eve holiday. This effort is part of the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over mobilization. Similar efforts will take place across the United States this holiday weekend.

During the previous New Year holiday period, there were 149 crashes in Oklahoma. Two of those crashes were fatalities resulting in the deaths of two people. Of those 149 crashes, at least 27 of them were alcohol and/or drug-related, according to the patrol.

A checkpoint is planned in Tulsa County for New Year’s Eve from 10 p.m. Dec. 31, until 1 a.m. Jan. 1, 2022. Agencies involved with this checkpoint include the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Bixby and Broken Arrow police departments, Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office, and the Muskogee (Creek) Nation Lighthorse Police.

Another checkpoint is planned in Muskogee on New Year’s Eve. The checkpoint will start at 9 p.m. and is scheduled to end just before midnight. Once the checkpoint has finished, all the officers, deputies, and troopers working the checkpoint will hit the streets to join the others looking for impaired drivers. Agencies involved include the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Muskogee Police Department, Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office, and the Muskogee (Creek) Nation Lighthorse Police.

The ENDUI enforcement team coordinates multi-jurisdictional events on a regular basis, including sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols.
