Police to conduct DUI checkpoint

The Pennsylvania State Police will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint during the Independence Day holiday weekend.

A sobriety checkpoint is a traffic safety checkpoint where Pennsylvania State Troopers systematically stop vehicles at selected locations to briefly observe drivers for signs of alcohol or drug impairment, police said.

The goal of a sobriety checkpoint is to reduce the number of alcohol and drug related fatal and serious crashes, and to reduce the number of DUI drivers on Pennsylvania's highways, police said.
