Ten Police Departments to Join Sobriety Checkpoint

POTTSTOWN PA – Police departments in Lower, Upper and West Pottsgrove, Pottstown, Douglass, North and East Coventry, Limerick, New Hanover, and Upper Providence all will participate during the extended Labor Day weekend in at least one sobriety checkpoint operation. They’ll be part of an aggressive impaired driving enforcement, operated by Team DUI, called “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”

The multi-jurisdictional law enforcement units intend to reduce the number of DUI-related accidents by deterring potential drunk drivers. They also hope to address problems of underage consumption, and the purchase of alcohol by minors.

Police are advising those who plan to drink alcoholic beverages during the period to designate a driver.
