This advisory is to initiate media attention and enhance public awareness. Motorists approaching a checkpoint will see information advising them that a checkpoint is ahead. Once diverted into a lane, a motorist will be detained a few moments while an officer explains the purpose of the checkpoint. VTD will staff the checkpoint.
