State Troopers to Set Up Several Sobriety Checkpoints

West Trenton, N.J. - In an effort to make our roads safer and reduce crashes attributed to driving while under the influence, the New Jersey State Police will be conducting DWI sobriety checkpoints on Friday, March 17, 2017. The checkpoints will be in the following areas:

  • Belmar/Neptune area in Monmouth County
  • Garden State Parkway northbound entrance ramp at Exit 98 in Wall Township, Monmouth County
  • New Jersey Turnpike Hudson Bay Extension entrance at Interchange 14C in Jersey City, Hudson County

If you see a driver you believe is posing a hazard because of poor driving behaviors, please call the aggressive driver tip line from a hands-free mobile device and report it by dialing #77. Be ready to give a description of the vehicle and occupants, a location and direction, and a license plate if possible.

Troopers will be looking for signs of impairment due to alcohol or drugs. If you plan on drinking, have a designated driver, arrange for transportation or stay where you are. It’s not worth the risk of hurting or killing yourself, a friend, a loved one, or innocent motorist.
