Local Police DUI Enforcement Teams Hit Streets on New Year's Eve

If you're planning on having a little too much to drink at your New Year's celebration Thursday night, Philadelphia Police have a warning for you: Stay off the road.

Roving DUI Enforcement Teams will be out in force throughout the city from 10 p.m. Thursday through 4 a.m. Friday, police said. The department didn't reveal locations the teams will be targeting, but said the officers will focus on "heavily traveled corridors and roadways that have displayed some incidents historically and throughout the year."

Roving DUI patrol teams will also be out in force on two major roadways that cut through Bucks and Montgomery counties.

Officials said 11 municipal police departments will join forces from 10 p.m. Thursday to 3 a.m. Friday to patrol stretches of Route 611 and Route 309.

The enforcement patrols are the second in a series of Bucks County traffic-enforcement initiatives undertaken by a county-wide task force. The task force is funded mostly by a federal traffic safety grant. The first enforcement blitz, on Thanksgiving Eve along Street Road, resulted in 10 arrests, according to authorities.
