The taskforce composed of Haverford, Marple, Newtown, Radnor, Springfield and Upper Darby Police Departments has been in operation since 2009 and has made 64 DUI arrests. Its purpose is to save lives on the roadways and reduce injuries by aggressively enforcing drunken driving laws. For more information on avoiding an arrest and keeping safe this holiday season visit DriveSafePA.org.
