Sobriety checkpoints in Lower Merion

The Lower Merion Township Police will conduct impaired driving checkpoints this Friday through Sunday, combined with roving patrols, as part of a national impaired-driving crackdown using the new tagline "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over."

A sobriety checkpoint is a highly visible, systematic method for stopping vehicles to determine whether motorists are under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances.

The checkpoint is being funded by a PennDOT grant.
