Pennsylvania State Police setting up DUI checkpoints this weekend

The Pennsylvania State Police are reminding drivers to not drive impaired.

State police across Pennsylvania are setting up DUI checkpoints, including within Butler County.

Troop D — which covers Butler, Armstrong, Beaver, Lawrence and Mercer counties — will be conducting these checkpoints at “various locations.”

“The checkpoints and enforcement will be conducted on road determined to be problematic with DUI offenses to safeguard motorists traveling through Butler County,” according to a news release from the state police.

The penalties for a DUI arrest range from a $300 fine and up to six months’ probation for a first-time offender; to one to five years in prison and a fine between $2,500 and $10,000, plus an 18-month license suspension for a frequent offender.
