Orange and Woodbridge police conducting joint sobriety checkpoints

The Orange and Woodbridge Police Departments will be conducting a joint sobriety checkpoint on June 30, 2012 in the Town of Orange. On May 25, 2012 the first joint sobriety checkpoint under the existing Amity Regional Traffic Enforcement agreement was conducted in the Town of Woodbridge. 

Chief Robert Gagne said, “As the summer season begins it is our hope to start the summer off safely for the motoring public through publicity, prevention and enforcement. Under a grant from the Connecticut Department of Transportation, both Departments will be supplementing our efforts against drunk driving with designated patrols and checkpoints throughout the year. We encourage the public to make plans in advance for designated drivers or other accommodations to ensure safe travel for all persons using the roadways.” 

Both Departments stress the importance of not getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle if you are under the influence. Don't become another statistic.
