Weekend planner: You may want to avoid Stephens tonight

Posted By on Fri, Oct 8, 2010 at 3:10 PM

From the city:

Missoula Police Department officers will conduct a traffic enforcement roadblock in the 500 block of Stephens Avenue on Friday, Oct. 8, from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. The event is to promote traffic safety awareness. At last month’s checkpoint, 18 percent of drivers stopped did not have valid proof of insurance coverage.

The Indy reported a few weeks ago on the city's intention to increase these types of stops. This is the first "traffic enforcement event" since then.

Also from the city:

The checkpoint will be clearly marked with signs, lights and uniformed officers. Officers will use marked vehicles and will be checking for current driver's licenses, registrations and insurance. Drivers will experience minimal delays and should have the proper documentation with them — proof of insurance, driver's license and registration.
