DUI checkpoints set up for Fourth of July festivities

Don't drink and drive this 4th of July.

Operation Checkpoint Strikeforce kicks off this weekend both upstate and downstate to catch drunk drivers.

The six-month long campaign netted more than 300 arrests last year, where alcohol played a role in more than half of Delaware's fatal crashes.

Being drunk while boating is also illegal. The Maritime Unit's Marine One will be operating on Delaware's waterways.
