As we get ready to wrap up summer in the next couple of weeks, the CT State Police is getting set to begin DUI checkpoints around the area.

According to Patch, from August 27 to Sept. 2, the checkpoints will be all across the state, including Greater Danbury. Here are some of the areas to watch out for:

  • Patrols through Danbury and Waterbury on Interstate 84 and Routes 7 and 8 on Aug 27 and 28.
  • Sobriety checkpoint on Lake Avenue Ext just off Exit 4 i-84 in Danbury on Aug 28.
  • Patrols through Danbury and Waterbury on Interstate 84 and Routes 7 and 8 on Aug 29 through Sept 2.

Take it easy and make sure you always have a sober driver!  It's not worth getting a DUI and all the ramifications that would follow.
