Manchester police planning sobriety checkpoints for weekend


MANCHESTER - Police say they will be conducting sobriety checkpoints in the Manchester area on Friday and Saturday.

The check point is part of a program approved for by the NH Highway Safety Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that will provide federal funding to support these checkpoints.

Manchester police cited the increasing incidents in drinking and driving as the reason behind the checkpoints this weekend when they applied for and were granted a Superior Court Petition for these checkpoints.
