Along the Delaware Riverfront, public safety officials gathered to discuss their summer DUI enforcement program. A multi-agency task force will be conducting sobriety checks at random locations and on random days throughout the Philadelphia area. Officers from the Philadelphia Police Department warn that not just people driving cars will be subject to sobriety checkpoints; but anyone piloting a boat or riding a bicycle may also be stopped for a sobriety check. The Philadelphia Police Department will be sending out the DUI enforcement truck, a giant motor home sized truck, to some of the random checkpoints and warn citizens to drive safely.
“So if you see our truck and you see our men and women, drive safely through it, and if you are impaired you’ll be arrested and taken downtown.”
