The Pennsylvania State Police will conduct sobriety checkpoints beginning March 15 through March 22 on Berks County roadways.
A sobriety checkpoint is a traffic safety checkpoint wherein Pennsylvania State Troopers systematically stop vehicles at selected locations to briefly observe drivers for articulable facts and/or behaviors normally associated with alcohol or drug impaired drivers.
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.
The Pennsylvania State Police is committed to maintaining a safe environment for the motoring public. This checkpoint is intended to achieve this goal.
