Police will stage checkpoints around Thanksgiving, according to the Rutland County Sheriff's Department.

“These checkpoints are focused on people who drink and drive and are under the influence of alcohol or illegal narcotics and people who have car seats incorrectly installed,” according to Lt. Kevin E. Geno, of the Sheriff’s Department. “People are reminded not to drink and drive and to wear their seat belt. All occupants of your vehicle need to be in the proper restraints.”

If people plan to drink, they should have a designated sober driver, he said. The department will stage checkpoints along with several other police agencies.
