Task force

Lehigh Valley Regional DUI Task Force will conduct sobriety checkpoints in Lehigh County during weekends in July.

A sobriety checkpoint is a traffic safety checkpoint wherein police systematically stop vehicles at selected locations to briefly observe drivers for articulable signs and/or behaviors normally associated with drivers impaired by alcohol and/or drugs.

The sobriety checkpoint is intended to reduce serious injury and fatal crashes caused by impaired drivers and to reduce the number of intoxicated drivers traveling on Pennsylvania highways.
