Three DUI checkpoints in all three counties were set up the night of Oct. 27 as part of our Checkpoint StrikeForce mobilization.

The Delaware Office of Highway Safety report that Checkpoint StrikeForce was successful.

A total of 2,749 cars went through checkpoints. Checkpoint stops resulted in six DUI arrests; two seatbelts assessments; one cell phone/distracted driving ticket; one child restraint arrest; three wanted person apprehensions; 11 drug arrests; 11 other traffic arrests; one underage drinking violation; and one other criminal arrest.

“The Office of Highway Safety would like to thank the Delaware State Police and local law enforcement agencies for their efforts to conduct the checkpoints and remove impaired drivers from our roadways,” said Kimberly Chesser, acting director, Delaware Office of Highway Safety.

OHS will coordinate the next Checkpoint StrikeForce on Nov. 21. Three DUI checkpoints will occur statewide, in addition to DUI patrols, to deter individuals from driving while impaired.
