Area DWI Checkpoint Slated for Saturday

A DWI checkpoint is set to run from Saturday night through early Sunday morning in Shrewsbury, the Monmouth County DWI Task Force announced.

The checkpoint, which will be set up in the Shrewsbury Plaza parking lot at Route 35 (Broad Street) and Shrewsbury Avenue, will run from 9 p.m. on Saturday through 2 a.m. on Sunday.

Vehicles will be pulled into the plaza lot from southbound lanes and drivers will be checked to determine whether or not they are under the influence of alcohol and/or any controlled dangerous substances and impaired, Task Force Coordinator and Brielle Police Chief Michael Palmer said.

The checkpoint is a coordinated effort between task force members and Shrewsbury police.
