CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — The Cambria County DUI Task Force and District Attorney will be conducting a “sobriety checkpoint” at a predetermined location this weekend.
Uniformed officers from police departments across the county will be located at the checkpoint from Aug. 20 to 22, according to a press release from the district attorney’s office.
It will focus on both drug and alcohol-impaired drivers to help reduce the risk of traffic collisions and fatalities associated with DUI.
As always, the task force urges people to keep the following in mind:
- Don’t drink and drive
- Before drinking, designate a sober driver
- Know how prescription medications affect you
- If you become impaired, call a sober friend/family member or an Uber/Taxi
- If someone you know is impaired and about to drive, help them find an alternative means of travel
