State Police Will Conduct Sobriety Checkpoint

The Pennsylvania State Police at Bethlehem announced last week that they will conduct a sobriety checkpoint in Lehigh or Northampton County the weekend of Nov. 30-Dec. 1.

The holiday season is around the corner, and it's a reality that drinking and driving is often more prevalent at that time.

So it's perhaps not a coincidence that Pennsylvania State Police at Bethlehem are planning to conduct a sobriety checkpoint somewhere in Northampton or Lehigh County the weekend of Nov. 30-Dec. 1.

Police announced their planned DUI checkpoint in a press release Nov. 13.

"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.

State troopers will systematically stop vehicles at the selected checkpoint location "to briefly observe drivers for articulable facts and/or behaviors normally associated with alcohol or drug impaired drivers," they added.
