Statewide Halloween DUI Checkpoints lead to many DUI arrests.

The Waynesboro Record Harold reported in the article below that statewide DUI task force units would set up many checkpoints during Halloween.
Many Pennsylvania drivers were charged with DUI related crimes after police conducted these statewide DUI Checkpoints targeting those who were celebrating Halloween.  If you are one of the many charged as a result of a DUI checkpoint, contact this office immediately to discuss your case.

Halloween is a holiday adults can celebrate as much as kids, but they need to remember impairment begins with the first drink, according to Officer Matthew Schmidt of the Washington Township Police Department and the Franklin County DUI task force, which will set up holiday checkpoints. “Buzzed driving is drunk driving, and police will be on the lookout for impaired drivers,” he said. “Last year, nearly 12,000 crashes in Pennsylvania involved alcohol, and more than 400 people were killed in those crashes. Designate a sober driver before you head out this Halloween.”
