Pinellas deputies will conduct sobriety checkpoint on U.S. 19 Friday

PALM HARBOR — The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, along with several other Tampa Bay agencies, will conduct a sobriety checkpoint Friday night.

The checkpoint, taking place at 31975 U.S. 19 N between Tampa and Curlew roads, is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Friday and end at 4 a.m. Saturday. Deputies will be diverting northbound traffic from U.S. 19 and looking for impaired drivers, as well as drivers with license, registration or insurance violations, the Sheriff's Office said.

Several other agencies will participate in the checkpoint Friday, including the Florida Highway Patrol and Pinellas Park and Largo police departments.

The checkpoint operation is dedicated to Yvonne Myers, 18, who died in June 1992 in a DUI-related traffic crash.
