TOMS RIVER – The New Jersey State Police will set up a sobriety checkpoint on Saturday, August 21. The exact location or time of day was not shared.
Police said checkpoints are an effort to make roads safer and reduce crashes attributed to driving while under the influence. Those who are planning on drinking should prepare for it by having a designated driver or make arrangements for transportation or lodging.
“It is not worth the risk of hurting or killing yourself, a friend, a loved one, or innocent motorist,” they said.
If you are a driver and see someone who might be driving unsafely, dial #77 from a hands-free mobile device to make a report. Be prepared to give a description of the vehicle and its occupants, a location and direction, and a license plate if possible, police said.
