State and local police made several arrests at a DUI checkpoint in York County Saturday night.
The checkpoint was set up on the 83 business loop heading toward South George Street in Spring Garden Township from about 10:00 p.m. Saturday to 3:00 a.m. Sunday.
“We’ve selected this place numerous times just because of the fact that Interstate 83 in York County has always been, in recent years, and still remains to be a very high area of DUI arrests and DUI crashes,” said Lt. Frederick Hess of the Pennsylvania State Police.
Police nabbed 20 people for drunk driving and took ten more into custody for drug charges.
With each checkpoint they set up, police say they hope to catch fewer and fewer people driving under the influence.
“Our goal would be to have zero in a perfect world. We would love nothing more than to be setting up out here for four, five hours and have everybody come through sober,” Hess said.
