Local DWI Checkpoint Set

With Halloween falling on a Tuesday this year, many parties and events are planned for the weekend; and local and state police, in cooperation with the Monmouth County DWI Task Force, will be conducting three DWI checkpoints, one of which is slated for tonight into Saturday morning in Red Bank.

The checkpoint will be set up in the Salvation Army parking lot on Newman Springs Road from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Drivers headed westbound will be directed into the lot from Newman Springs Road and will be screened for sobriety, according to Task Force coordinator and Brielle Police Chief Mike Palmer.

The other two checkpoints will be set in Belmar and Neptune.
