DOVER, Del.- The Delaware Office of Highway Safety coordinated DUI checkpoints on Thanksgiving eve in each county statewide from 10 p.m. Nov. 27, to 2 a.m. Nov. 28.

Working together with Delaware State Police and local law enforcement, the Office of Highway Safety supported three DUI checkpoints across the state. A total of 65 officers worked 390 hours combined and saw 1,463 vehicles come through the checkpoints.

According to the OHS, the checkpoints resulted in six DUI arrests. Officers also netted an additional 58 traffic arrests or citations for various infractions, including six seatbelt assessments, seven drug arrests and the apprehension of one wanted person.

OHS will coordinate the next Checkpoint Strikeforce effort on Dec. 14. Three DUI checkpoints will occur statewide, as well as DUI patrols, to deter individuals from driving while impaired.
