As families celebrate Christmas and anticipate the New Year, police will be cracking down on an expected increase of drunken driving.
"During the holiday period, there are more activities and more parties," Cpl. Gerry McShea of the Pennsylvania State Police said Tuesday. "There is definitely a spike in people driving while intoxicated.
"Our goal is if you are driving intoxicated that you will be found."
He said state troopers will have enforcement checkpoints set up in Philadelphia, Montgomery, and Delaware Counties during this holiday period. McShea declined to provide specifics, saying intoxicated drivers may take alternate routes if they know in advance where the sobriety checkpoints are.
