RENO — The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting an administrative roadside checkpoint from approximately 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday on El Rancho Drive near Weems Way by the Weems Park area. This checkpoint is being conducted to ensure that drivers are legally operating their vehicles.

While this is being conducted similarly to a DUI Checkpoint, the object of the checkpoint is to ensure operators have a valid driver’s license and have proper insurance and registration for their vehicles.

Nevada law allows for administrative roadside checkpoints to be conducted for several purposes. In addition, officers will be checking that seat belts are being worn.

The sheriff’s office will be conducting this checkpoint using grant funds provided by the Nevada Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety.
