The Delaware Office of Highway Safety, working together with the Delaware State Police and local law enforcement supported three DUI checkpoints across the state from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sept. 1.

The effort netted seven DUI arrests and 48 traffic arrests or citations for various infractions, including seven seatbelt assessments, six drug arrests and the apprehension of two wanted persons.

“OHS thanks the Delaware State Police and local law enforcement agencies who manned the checkpoints to keep impaired drivers off of our roadways,” said Kimberly Chesser, acting director, Delaware Office of Highway Safety. “We were able to make Delawareans safer through education, deterrence and the sobriety checkpoints to inform the motoring public on the importance of driving safely.”

OHS will coordinate the next Checkpoint Strikeforce effort on Oct. 27. Three DUI checkpoints will occur statewide, as well as DUI patrols, to deter individuals from driving while impaired.
