BELMAR, NJ — A sobriety checkpoint will be set up on May 4 in Belmar by the New Jersey State Police, which did not provide additional details on its location and time.
The state police made the announcement on its Facebook page, alerting motorists that state troopers will be pulling over vehicles looking for drivers who exhibit signs of impairment due to alcohol or drugs, according to the post.
“If you plan on drinking, have a designated driver, arrange for transportation or stay where you are. It’s not worth the risk of hurting or killing yourself, a friend, a loved one, or innocent motorist,” the post said.
The police also encourage individuals to report any drivers posing a hazard because of poor driving behaviors. The aggressive driver tip line can be called from a hands-free mobile device by dialing #77. Be ready to give a description of the vehicle and occupants, a location and direction, and a license plate if possible.
