August 5, 2016 Safety Checkpoint Results

The Knox County Sheriff's Office, with assistance from the Rockport and Camden Police Departments conducted a "Safety Checkpoint" on Route 17 at the pull-out near Chickawaukie Lake on the evening of August 5th.

Of the over 500 vehicles checked that night, a majority of them were in compliance and expressed appreciation for our efforts to ensure safe vehicles and operators on the roads.

Unfortunately, not everyone was in compliance. We did find various violations that were addressed with warnings, defects, and summonses, or in the case of two people found to be Operating Under the Influence (OUI), the individuals were arrested.

The following are the statistics of the violations addressed:

1 - Operating without a License
1 - Operating After License Suspended
1 - Illegal Transportation of Liquor by a Juvenile
3 - Possession of Marijuana
1 - Seatbelt violation
1 - Expired Registration
1 - Failure to Produce Certificate of Insurance
9 - Expired Inspection Sticker
