DUI Checkpoints Planned for Labor Day Weekend in South Jersey

Last Edited:

"Drive sober or get pulled over."

Police departments are putting out that warning throughout South Jersey as they gear up for the busy Labor Day weekend, which is about two weeks away.

The national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign kicks off on Friday, August 18th, and police departments across South Jersey are getting ready to conduct multiple sobriety checkpoints and roving patrols — all in an effort to get motorists who may be under the influence of alcohol off the roads.

The campaign uses holiday periods to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving.

Law enforcement officials offer the following advice to enjoy the end of summer without facing charges for driving while impaired:

  • If you plan to drink, use a designated driver
  • Take mass transit, a taxi, or a ride-hailing service like Uber
  • Don't forget to always buckle up.
