FORT MYERS, Fla.- Fort Myers police are taking a close look at drivers' licenses and registrations.
Instead of a D.U.I. checkpoint, police are stopping vehicles and asking for drivers' licenses and registrations. If the driver doesn't have one, or if they're out of date or suspended, motorists will be pulled off the road, cited or even arrested.
It's the first checkpoint of its kind in the city of Fort Myers since 2009. Those who can produced the documents, will drive off within moments. But those that can't, can expect to get a closer look.
If a driver forgets their license at home, they will receive a ticket, while others will face stiffer consequences for more serious violations.
Four checkpoints are planned for Tuesday in each of the city's police district. Motorists should be prepared for two other checkpoints before 7 p.m. on Tuesday and should expect traffic delays in those zones.
