A DWI checkpoint is slated to run in Ocean Township from Friday night into early Saturday morning.

The Monmouth County DWI Task Force, in conjunction with Ocean Township police, will conduct the checkpoint from 10 p.m. Friday night through 2 a.m. Saturday morning, pulling vehicles from the northbound lanes off the Asbury Park circle into a parking lot.

Authorities will be screening drivers to determine if they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to a release from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and Task Force Coordinator/Brielle Police Chief Michael Schneider.
