The Utah Highway Patrol, Beaver District, in cooperation with the Beaver County Sheriffs will Department, will be scheduling traffic check points. These checks 1997. 10 and October 31, take place between Jury These check points will be set up on state roads 257, 2 1, 130, 153, 160 and Interstate 15, inside the boundaries of Beaver County. Drivers will be asked to show a drivers license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance. Motorists should make sure that all of these items are in order. A traffic check point is an effective way for officers to monitor and enforce seat belt usage. It is also effective in detecting alcohol or drug impaired drivers. When worn properly, seat belts have shown to reduce injury and death in about 95 percent of traffic accidents. Approximately one third of Utah crashes are a result of drinking drivers. Therefore officers will be looking for these violations. One of the Utah Highway Patrol's main areas of emphasis is service to the public. If we can spare even one person from the trauma of property damage andor injury resulting from a serious accident, our efforts will have been worth it. ,V mi V -- All r i ; ...

The '"probable cause" referred to in court can be nervousness, body language, watching the officer, having an air freshener in the vehicle, or eating a breath mint.
