Many people consume alcohol more frequently over the summer months, on account of picnics, barbecues and parties. However, local police want residents to know that if they decide to drink to excess, they should also decide not to drive.
Police say they are already stepping up efforts to enforce DUI laws, in order to keep area roadways safe for everyone this summer.
In a press release issued at the start of the Memorial Day weekend, announced that they will be conducting and checkpoints through September, as part of the effort.
The and Freemansburg police departments are also participating in the enforcement initiative.
"The goal of the program is to deter impaired driving and to identify and arrest offenders in an effort to create a safer environment for all people in the Commonwealth," police said.
The legal limit for blood alcohol content (BAC) in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is .08 percent.
