By: Sgt. T.J. Long
The Northern Delaware County DUI Taskforce will be conducting roving DUI patrols during the weekend of February 9th, 2024 within its jurisdictional area.
Havertown, PA - The Northern Delaware County DUI Taskforce is comprised of five municipalities - Haverford, Marple, Newtown, Radnor and Springfield Townships. It has been in operation since September 2009 and has conducted 115 operations to date. The taskforce has arrested 180 drivers for Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs, and issued 47 citations for underage drinking along with 1253 citations and 1888 warnings for other motor vehicle violations.
The purpose of the Northern Delaware County DUI Taskforce is to save lives on the roadways and reduce injuries by aggressively enforcing DUI laws. Sobriety checkpoints are a proactive visual deterrent while also removing impaired drivers; roving patrols are traffic details with the main goals to spot and stop possible impaired drivers before they can cause harm to innocent unsuspecting motorists traveling on our roadways.
The Northern Delaware County DUI Taskforce reminds all drivers over the age of twenty-one (21) to be responsible and NEVER operate a motor vehicle while impaired. Read carefully all instruction labels on prescription or over the counter medications and make arrangements prior to consuming alcohol for a designated driver. Don’t risk arrest, injury or death.
