CONWAY POLICE SAY BECAUSE OF INCREASING INCIDENTS OF DRINKING AND DRIVING, A “SOBRIETY CHECKPOINT” WILL BE CONDUCTED SOMEWHERE IN CONWAY THE WEEK OF SEPT. 2, 2013.

CHIEF ED WAGNER SAYS THE CHECKPOINTS ARE ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE METHODS OF DETECTING AND APPREHENDING IMPAIRED DRIVERS.

THE CHIEF SAYS HE’S GOTTEN AUTHORIZATION FROM A COURT TO CONDUCT THE CHECKPOINT.

THE CHECKPOINT WILL BE FUNDED BY FEDERAL HIGHWAY SAFETY DOLLARS IN A PROGRAM APPROVED BY THE NEW HAMPSHIRE HIGHWAY SAFETY AGENCY AND THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION.

WAGNER SAYS NEW HAMPSHIRE HAS SOME OF THE MOST AGGRESSIVE LAWS IN THE U.S. TO FIGHT INTOXICATED DRIVERS AND HIS DEPARTMENT WILL USE THOSE TOOLS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT.

FOR QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PROGRAM, CALL SGT. GEORGE WALKER AT (603) 356-5715.
