Berlin police will have sobriety checkpoints during July to discourage drunk driving
BERLIN — The Berlin Police Department will be conducting sobriety checkpoints in the City of Berlin during the week of July 9.
The program, which was approved by NH Highway Safety Agency and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, supports the checkpoints using federal highway safety funds.
As the number of deaths and injuries due to impaired driving increases, Berlin police applied for a Superior Court Petition to conduct the checkpoints, and it was ultimately approved.
Berlin police chief Peter Morency and the department have an aggressive stance against intoxicated drivers and will use the law to the full extent to punish drivers under the influence.
