FOX43 Legal Analyst on DUI Checkpoints

Adams County will join York and Lancaster Counties in conducting sobriety checkpoints during the upcoming weekend as part of the Center for Traffic Safety’s Sobriety Checkpoint and Expanded DUI/Underage Drinking Enforcement Program.

The sobriety checkpoints will be held sometime between 6 p.m. on Friday and 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Sobriety checkpoints, roving DUI patrols, and other enforcement activities organized as part of this program are funded with federal grant money provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, and established on sections of roadway which have proven to be high incidence for impaired drivers both in terms of crashes and arrests.

Sobriety checkpoints are announced in advance, but roving DUI patrols and other related enforcement activities may or may not be announced in advance.
