A sobriety checkpoint will be conducted in York County during the upcoming weekend as part of the Center for Traffic Safety's Sobriety Checkpoint and Expanded DUI/Underage Drinking Enforcement Program.

The sobriety checkpoint, postponed from last weekend due to heavy rains, will be held sometime between 6 p.m. on Friday and 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Sobriety checkpoints, roving DUI patrols, and other enforcement activities organized as part of this program are funded with federal grant money provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, and established on sections of road which have proven to be high incidence for impaired drivers both in terms of crashes and arrests.
