Conn., NY Police to step up patrols this holiday weekend

Connecticut State Police are setting up roving DUI patrols and checkpoints during this Labor Day weekend.  Roving patrols will be done on I-84 and Route 7 in the Greater Brookfield and Danbury areas today through Monday. 


Labor Day is one of the busiest weekends of the year on the roads.  Troopers will be concentrating their enforcement efforts on drunk driving, speeding, seatbelt violations, and distracted driving.  Trooper Kelly Grant says there are no second chances for first time DWI offenders.  An Ignition Interlock Device can be installed on your vehicle if you are arrested for DWI.


Putnam County Sheriff deputies will be conducting sobriety checkpoints along area roadways as well.  Sheriff Donald Smith says the announcement of the planned checkpoints is aimed at deterring intoxicated or impaired driving and is part of a statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown effort. 


Labor Day celebrations include end-of-summer gatherings of friends for picnics and backyard barbecues, which can result in increased instances of persons drinking and then driving.  Smith says they are encouraging all residents who plan to drink, to make appropriate plans now to have a designated driver or use a taxi.
