2 DUI Checkpoints Planned in Del. This Weekend

Updated:

DOVER, Del.- Police in Delaware have scheduled two DUI checkpoints across the state this weekend as part of the Checkpoint Strikeforce crackdown against drunk driving.

According to the state Office of Highway Safety, the checkpoints scheduled for Friday night in Christiana/Newark and Saturday in Wilmington are being implemented as a part of the Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign aimed to crack down on impaired driving.

According to the OHS, the operation is designed to remove impaired drivers from the road and hinder those who might make the poor decision to drive after drinking alcohol or using drugs.
