The University of Georgia, Athens-Clarke County Police and Georgia State Patrol are joining together to welcome back UGA students with vehicle safety checkpoints around the Athens area.
These checkpoints, which will be at undisclosed locations as of press time, will last from the Friday night to early Saturday morning.
As previously reported in a Red & Black article, the checkpoints will be used to "ensure drivers are obeying all ACC laws."
Earlier this month, police established a checkpoint on Milledge Avenue for the same reasons.
Checkpoints were set up in April by UGA Police on Oglethorpe Avenue, East Broad Street at Hickory Street and East Campus Road. During this time, a total of 17 arrests were made – five of them involving DUI charges.
