Last updated 11/25/2019 at 3:39pm

The Blair County D.U.I. Task Force has announced that it will be conducting one or more events this week.

Sobriety checkpoints are well lit and manned by uniformed officers. Roving patrols utilize uniformed officers in marked police vehicles. Motorists are reminded to always be alert while in the vicinity of emergency personnel and vehicles. Remember Pennsylvania’s “Move Over Law”.

Cops in Shops utilizes police officers, either in uniform or wearing civilian attire. Officers may pose as employees or customers of six-pack stores and distributors in an attempt to deter liquor law violations.

Law enforcement agencies ask all drivers (please):

Don't drink and drive.

Know if your prescription medication affects your driving ability.

Wear your seatbelts.

Allow enough driving time so that you are not rushed.

Be a defensive driver. Be alert to all traffic, pedestrians, and actual or potential hazards.

Impaired driving is preventable.

The DUI Task Force is committed to reducing the number of alcohol related accidents, injuries, and deaths in Blair County. The methods used to achieve that goal are:

Education of the public regarding the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code and DUI laws

Deterrance of motorists from driving after consuming alcohol; and

Apprehension of those who violate the laws of the commonwealth.
