DUI Checkpoints

5/24/2008 Update:

A reader chimed in and said that there as a checkpoint over at 14th and Willow, indicating about 5-7 squad cars handing out tickets, checking cars, etc.

5/17/2008:

Be advised that the Hoboken Police occasionally set up Drunk Driving checkpoints in the city (tonight being an example.)

In addition, they plan checkpoints for the Memorial Day Weekend as well. So if you had one too many, better sober up before driving out of town!

But wait a minute, if they don’t have enough working police cruisers, how can they have these checkpoints and still ensure order across town?

eam144,
Us too..we drove to DE for the long weekend and were stopped twice in NJ in the burbs and another three times in DE along the way. We all wear our seatbelts but we saw lots of tickets being handed out.

This weekend was the Click-It and Ticket weekend, did anyone get a seatbelt ticket? The stops were all over the burbs and the GSP all weekend.

[quote comment=”83577″]There should be no DUI check points. You should only get a DUI if you hit something or caught speeding, if you don’t do those two things than you were ok to drive………….[/quote]

The punishment for that in Hoboken is less than if you were caught walking down the sidewalk with an open container.
