Since January 1st there have been over 3,600 individuals arrested for DUI in Delaware this year. Checkpoint Strikeforce is a regional sobriety checkpoint campaign aimed at arresting DUI offenders, by using high visibility enforcement to deter those who would otherwise choose to drink and drive.
The campaign, a six month long effort running through New Year’s Eve, involves setting up weekly DUI checkpoints statewide.
