NJ Announces Stepped-Up Enforcement Against Drunk Driving

duiThe state today announced a 17-day campaign against drunk driving as part of its annual “Over the Limit, Under Arrest” initiative. From Friday, Aug. 20 to Monday, Sept. 6, local police departments will add patrols to the roads and set up “sobriety checkpoints.” The goal is to make enforcement very visible in order to increase the perceived risk of arrest and discourage people from driving drunk.
