One of the biggest party nights of the year will also have police out in force conducting DUI checkpoints. The Northern Delaware County DUI Taskforce announced it will conduct a DUI checkpoint on Nov. 23, the night before Thanksgiving.The enforcement is part of “Operation Safe Holiday,” which runs statewide from Thanksgiving through New Year’s.

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.
