Bucks DUI Task Force Checkpoint Set for Bensalem Tomorrow

September 9, 2016


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
Contact Matthew Weintraub, 215.340.8159

At least 17 officers from seven municipal departments will stop drivers along Street Road

Bucks County’s DUI Task Force will be out again on Saturday night, Sept. 10, this time staffing a checkpoint along Street Road in Bensalem Township.

From 10 p.m. Saturday to 3 a.m. Sunday, at least 17 officers from seven municipal departments will operate a stationary, fully staffed checkpoint on the busy Lower Bucks thoroughfare.

All passing vehicles will be stopped at the checkpoint, where drivers will be observed for signs of impairment. Any who appear to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs may be subjected to field sobriety tests and possible arrest.

The checkpoint will be the second such operation for the task force this year. A checkpoint conducted on St. Patrick’s Day along the Newtown Bypass resulted in four DUI charges and one arrest for drug possession.

It also comes on the heels of roving DUI patrols conducted in eight municipalities on Sept. 2 and Sept. 3 during the Labor Day weekend. The extra patrols in Bensalem, Doylestown, Middletown, New Britain, Newtown, Upper Southampton, Warrington and Warwick Townships resulted in 132 vehicle stops, and 10 arrests for DUI. Two additional drivers were arrested: one for drug possession and one who was wanted on a warrant.

Participating in this weekend’s checkpoint will be officers from Bensalem, Middletown, New Britain, Solebury, Upper Southampton and Warrington Townships, as well as from Penndel Borough. In all, the task force has conducted seven DUI enforcement details throughout the county over the past year.

Bucks County is proud to host the oldest county-wide impaired driving enforcement program in Pennsylvania. For more than a decade, Impaired Driving Program grants have been provided through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in cooperation with the PA DUI Association. The grants help pay for salary reimbursement for officers who participate in the program, as well as for equipment used in DUI enforcement.
