Powerline Road drivers be warned:

Get your documents in order. Police will be conducting a traffic safety checkpoint from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday in the northbound lanes of the 5200 block of Powerline Road — that’s just north of Commercial Boulevard.

One lane will be closed and officers will systematically select vehicles to check for drivers’ licenses, vehicle registrations and proof of insurance, a spokeswoman for Fort Lauderdale police said. Complaints about speeding and traffic violations in the area prompted the action. Police do not anticipate “serious traffic delays” as a result of the checkpoint.
