Four drivers were cited for driving while intoxicated in the first of an ongoing series of sobriety checkpoints, last Saturday night on Route 88.

Sergeant Henry Drew says that officers set up the checkpoint in the parking lot of Colonial Funeral Home and conducted stops on 835 vehicles traveling the westbound side of the highway between 10 PM and 3 AM.

Drivers were given pamphlets detailing the dangers of drinking and driving and sent on their way, unless officers sensed other indications of drugs or alcohol. Those vehicles were taken to one side for deeper investigation.

In addition to the four DWI arrestees, five cars were impounded and 26 summonses issued for various other infractions.

Patrol officers from Lacey and Manchester Townships also took part in the checkpoint, operated in conjunciton with the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.

The initiative operates on a grant from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety (NJDHTS).
