New Jersey State Police have announced that they will host a sobriety checkpoint in town Saturday night as part of an effort “to make our roads safer and reduce crashes attributed to driving while under the influence.”
The specific location of the Aug. 21 checkpoint was not divulged. Police, however, did share some tips on what to expect this weekend.
“Troopers will be looking for signs of impairment due to alcohol or drugs,” the announcement said. “If you plan on drinking, have a designated driver, arrange for transportation, or stay where you are. It is not worth the risk of hurting or killing yourself, a friend, a loved one, or innocent motorist.”
The announcement also said that if you see someone you believe is posing a hazard because of poor driving behaviors, dial #77 from a hands-free mobile device to contact the aggressive driver tip line and make a report.
“Be ready to give a description of the vehicle and occupants, a location and direction, and a license plate if possible,” the statement said.
