New Hampshire Joins National Labor Day Weekend “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” Campaign

The New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency and several New Hampshire police units are participating in the nationwide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign this Labor Day. The campaign, which was launched by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) and the Governors’ Highway Safety Association (GHSA), aims to decrease the number of dangerous and deadly accidents that take place on U.S. roads over the Labor Day weekend. The federal agencies have supplied grants, training and public advertising campaigns to warn drivers about the increased patrols and pay for extra police, sobriety checkpoints, and other tools aimed at identifying possibly intoxicated drivers.

In New Hampshire, police units will be holding sobriety checkpoints in 48 places across the state during the Labor Day holiday. Each law enforcement unit is required to hold at least one checkpoint. In addition, the state has received grant money to pay for 20 more state and local law enforcement patrols on NH roads, looking for drivers who may be intoxicated. These patrols will continue to scour New Hampshire’s streets until September 15, 2011, but the additional checkpoints will only run during the Labor Day weekend.

New Hampshire sobriety checkpoints are meant to give police a closer look at drivers, so police can stop those whom they believe may be intoxicated. However, even at a sobriety checkpoint, police officers can make mistakes and improperly arrest sober drivers.
