Dover –  One Checkpoint Strikeforce DUI checkpoint is scheduled to take place Friday August 1st, in Newark and will be conducted by the Delaware State Police.  DUI saturation patrols will also be conducted this weekend by Harrington PD and Seaford PD.

Last week 88 individuals were arrested for DUI in Delaware bringing the total DUI arrests statewide for 2014 to 2,330.  Of the 76 fatal crashes this year, 40% were alcohol related.

Checkpoint Strikeforce is a regional sobriety checkpoint campaign aimed at arresting DUI offenders, by using high visibility enforcement to deter those who would otherwise choose to drink and drive.  The campaign, a six month long effort running through New Year’s Eve, involves setting up weekly DUI checkpoints statewide.
