DUI checkpoints planned for weekend

Pennsylvania State Police will conduct DUI sobriety checkpoints and roving DUI patrols throughout Luzerne County the weekend of March 10 through March 12.

State Police Troop P of Wilkes-Barre said in a statement they will conduct the checkpoints on roadways that have had high rates of DUI related traffic violations and vehicle crashes.

Pennsylvania’s DUI laws prescribe a legal limit of .08 percent blood alcohol concentration. Penalties for a DUI can range from a $300 fine with six months probation to fines of $5,000 with prison sentences of up to five years.
