Dover – The following DUI checkpoints are scheduled to take place tonight as part of the Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign:
Friday August 30th – Newport- NCCo. DUI Task Force – checkpoint
Rehoboth Beach- DSP – checkpoint
The Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign is a crackdown on impaired driving. Delaware will be conducting DUI checkpoints every weekend from now until New Years. This campaign is aimed at removing impaired drivers from our roadways and deterring those who might otherwise choose to drive after drinking alcohol or using drugs.
The Office of Highway Safety reminds motorists that traffic deaths kill and injure Delawareans nearly twice as often as violent crimes.
