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 set up sobriety checkpoints on Saturday, June 4, 2016, in the Maurice River Township, Cumberland County and Toms River, Ocean County areas.
If you see someone you believe is posing a hazard because of poor driving behaviors, please dial #77 from a hands-free mobile device to contact the aggressive driver tip line and make a report. 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 drugs or alcohol. The New Jersey State Police will be conducting several more checkpoints throughout the summer. 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.
