PHOTO: NJSP Checkpoint Going on Now on GSP

njsp checkpoint gsp 3-7The New Jersey State Police Troop “D” Traffic Office, in an effort to reduce crashes attributed to driving while intoxicated, has set up a sobriety checkpoint this evening.

Vehicles traveling on the Garden State Parkway in Monmouth County may be stopped between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

NJSP: Are we losing the element of surprise by sending out this message ahead of time? Maybe, but people who choose to drive after drinking already know how expensive, life-changing, and deadly such a decision can be. But they do it anyway in total disregard for their safety and the safety of everyone else on the road. We’re assuming that their poor judgment will not impede our ability to take drunk drivers off the road just because of a little advance warning.

If you spot a driver you believe is posing a hazard because of poor driving behaviors, please call the aggressive driver tip line from a hands-free mobile device by dialing #77. Be ready to give a description of the vehicle and occupants, a location and direction, and a license plate if possible. The better the info, the better our chances of stopping the vehicle, BUT, do not get too close to the vehicle just to get this information. Your safety is more important to us than getting a perfect description.

  1. Check points are totally ineffective yes maybe youll catch a few but what happens next week month or year when the check points are gone? the only deterrent that would work is make the penalty harsher 1st DWI offense you loose your license for 5 years, 2nd offense minimum 1 year in prison. over night that would take care of the problem
