Police departments began setting up DWI checkpoints throughout Morris County NJ.
The acting Morris County prosecutor and the Morris County chief of investigations issued a statement saying that DWI checkpoints will be in effect throughout the county.
According to the statement, the checkpoints will target drunk and otherwise impaired drivers. The checkpoints will continue through September 2014.
Recently, a DWI checkpoint was put in place in Morristown, NJ. This upcoming Friday, another DWI checkpoint will be setup in Denville, New Jersey. The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office said that more checkpoints will be announced in the future.
The drunk driving initiative is supported by a County DWI Enforcement Grant from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The grant is meant to support prosecutor’s office efforts to conduct DWI checkpoints throughout Morris County in cooperation with municipal police departments.
