The Missouri Highway Patrol will be conducting a BWI, boating while intoxicated, sobriety checkpoint on the Lake of the Ozarks sometime in July.
Boaters who come across this checkpoint on the water are subject to being stopped.
Troopers say the officer doing the checkpoint will briefly speak to the driver of the boat, then perform a safety check of the boat's equipment.
If the officer suspects the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they will be asked to perform a field sobriety test.
All efforts will be made to keep the process as brief as possible.
