The checkpoints will be combined with roving patrols in the Township.
Between, June 9, 2017 and June 11, 2017, the Lower Merion Township Police will conduct Impaired Driving Checkpoints combined with Roving Patrols in the Township. This initiative is in partnership with a national impaired driving crackdown featuring intensified, highly visible enforcement activities using the tagline “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”
A sobriety checkpoint is a highly visible, systematic method for stopping vehicles at a selected location to determine whether motorists are operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances.
The sobriety checkpoint is being funded by a PennDOT grant and is one of many tools utilized to increase public safety through increased awareness created by high profile enforcement.
For more information, contact the Lower Merion Police Department at (610) 645-6204.
