Two sobriety checkpoints are scheduled to occur in Wilmington and Newport on Friday, Dec. 31st .  New Years Eve is a big night for impaired driving according to state and local law enforcement officers.  Last year nineteen (19) people were arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) of alcohol and/or drugs on New Year’s Eve.  Checkpoints will be supplemented with over 60 additional DUI saturation patrols throughout the night by State, County and Municipal police agencies.                     
This past Christmas weekend (Dec. 24th – 25th) was not so jolly for some drivers.  Law enforcement officers arrested twenty (20) people for DUI last weekend, cited 38 for speeding, and one for aggressive driving.  Additionally, officers arrested 4 for underage drinking, apprehended 7 wanted individuals, made 7 drug arrests, 5 felony arrests, issued 7 seat belt citations, 3 child restraint citation, and 145 citations for various other traffic violations. 
This brings the total number of people arrested for DUI during the 2010 Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign and Safe Family Holiday campaign combined to 566. 
With one more weekend left in 2010, the Office of Highway Safety encourages motorists to minimize distractions in their vehicles, buckle up, and slow down and start the New Year off safe.
