Evesham Police Department to use roadside checkpoint against DWI’s this spring season

Evesham Police Department to use roadside checkpoint against DWI’s this spring season

Chief Christopher Chew and the Evesham Police Department announce its intention to use the full effects of roadside checkpoints this spring season in the enforcement of intoxicated or impaired drivers. Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is a very serious violation of State law and taken very seriously by the entire Evesham Police Department.

Police officers from this agency will utilize appropriate traffic control devices to facilitate roadside checks in accordance with departmental policy and law. Motorists traveling on the selected roadways will be asked to slow down and even stop during the course of a checkpoint. Police will make every effort to limit traffic delays. Motorists are asked to be patient and cooperate with such proactive measures in a “police-public partnership” on making roadways safer for everyone. The goal is to prevent motorists from driving while intoxicated.

Drunk Driving Enforcement Funds (DDEF) collected by the court system will be used to offset the cost of these DWI enforcement efforts.

The aforementioned checkpoints will or may be operational through June 15. The exact locations, dates, and times will not be revealed at this time. However, potential areas of operation will be major roadways or thoroughfares state, county or municipal, that pass through the township.

More specifically, roadways such as State Highway 73, State Highway 70, Maple Avenue, Greentree Road, Main Street or Marlton Parkway will be utilized. All checkpoints will be highly visible at the time of execution. A letter of request and justification specifically indicating the exact locations, dates and times will be on file with the Chief of Police.

Concerned citizens are always encouraged to report erratic or DWI driving to local authorities.
