St Patrick’s Day DUI Checkpoint Returning to Warrington This Weekend

Irish or not, don’t push your luck this St. Patrick’s Day weekend.

Officers from 11 Bucks County police departments along with the Pennsylvania State Police will be on the lookout for impaired drivers this weekend at a sobriety checkpoint in Warrington.

From 10 p.m. Saturday until 3 a.m., police will be stopping vehicles traveling in both directions along Route 611 and observing drivers for signs of intoxication.

Police officers from the Bensalem Township, Middletown Township, New Britain Township, Newtown Borough, Newtown Township, Northampton Township, Penndel Borough, Perkasie Borough, Upper Southampton Township, Warrington Township and Warwick Township police departments along with state troopers will man the checkpoint.

“St. Patrick’s Day is a great time to celebrate with friends.  But no one should press their luck by drinking or doing drugs and driving, Irish or not,” said District Attorney Matthew D. Weintraub. “Plan ahead to get home safely.”

This weekend’s DUI checkpoint is funded by a grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
