That is why the Delaware Office of Highway Safety (OHS) and law enforcement agencies are participating in the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” high-visibility enforcement campaign that is running from August 15 through September 1.
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.
