Local authorities will conduct a traffic safety checkpoint during a special enforcement effort on Saturday, June 10.

Officers will set up a Traffic Safety Checkpoint on Highway 9, just west of the city limits of Estherville from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.

The Making Optimal Changes for Successful Youth Coalition supports this effort to prevent traffic safety related tragedies.

During the Traffic Safety Checkpoint, officers will examine vehicles for all safety related issues. Vehicle operators will be checked for valid driver license, registration and insurance. Vehicles will also be checked for equipment violations. Safety issues will be addressed as officers become aware of other violations of the law.

The Emmet County Sheriff's Department, Estherville Police Department, Armstrong Police Department and the Iowa State Patrol will take part in the event.

The Making Optimal Changes for Successful Youth Coalition supports this effort to prevent traffic safety related tragedies.

"Our officers are always committed to everyone's safety, but we're especially thankful for this special enforcement effort to protect Emmet County travelers," said Compass Pointe's, Iowa Partnerships for Success Coordinator, Jody Monroe. "Our concerns are that the travelling public arrives at their destination safely."

While the officers are speaking with drivers and passengers, they will receive a variety of traffic safety information. Motorists will receive pamphlets and fliers on topics to include: Drinking and Driving, Texting and Driving, Seat Belt Use, and Child Safety Seats.

The Iowa Partnerships for Success Grant funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Prevention and is administered by the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH). Compass Pointe was awarded the grant.
