More DWI checkpoints and patrols this weekend in N.J.
Additional Checkpoints Run from August 19 – September 5 2016
TRENTON — Police departments across New Jersey will be launching a widespread crackdown on drunken driving this weekend as part of a national campaign to reduce traffic fatalities.
Starting Friday, local, county and state law enforcement agencies will be stepping up patrols and DWI checkpoints as part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, state officials said.
Through Monday, Sept. 5 (Labor Day), 164 police departments in the Garden State will be increasing their presence on the roads with the aid of $5,000 grants to help pay for overtime, according the state Division of Highway Traffic Safety. Agencies that did not receive grants will also be participating, officials said.
