PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Highway Patrol is kicking off March with a series of 17 sobriety checkpoints across the state.

The patrol conducts the checkpoints in a select number of counties each month as a way to discourage people from drinking and driving. The saturation patrols are designed to place more troopers in a particular area at one time.

Checkpoints are planned during the month for the counties of: Aurora, Brown, Butte, Clay, Codington, Davison, Edmunds, Hughes, Jackson, Kingsbury, Lawrence, Marshall, Minnehaha, Pennington, Roberts, Sanborn and Yankton.
