DUI Checkpoint Set for May 4th

Dover  – The following checkpoint is scheduled to take place Friday as part of the Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign:

Friday May 4th –   Newark  (NcCo DUI Task Force)

The Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign is a crackdown on impaired driving.  Delaware will be conducting 2 DUI checkpoints each month until July when weekly DUI checkpoints will resume.  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.
