DUI crackdown tonight

A DUI checkpoint is scheduled for tonight near Fenwick Island.

State Police are cracking down on drunk drivers every weekend now through New Year's Eve as part of their Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign.

Checkpoint Strikeforce is meant to not only catch impaired drivers, but to deter people from driving drunk in the first place.

The Office of Highway Safety says traffic deaths kill and injure Delawareans nearly twice as often as violent crimes.
