Cities all across the metro area will be cashing in – err cracking down this weekend.
Kansas City and Independence are both conducting checkpoints and saturation patrols.
In the past year, Kansas City conducted over 25 checkpoints. To my knowledge, KCPD did not publish data on all the checkpoints, but did for 23 of their operations. KCPD stopped a total of 12,256 vehicles at those locations and issued DWI citations 363 times. Or 2.9% of the time.
