People who drive through Adams County this weekend could encounter a sobriety checkpoint, which will be the first in a number of local enforcement efforts to crack down on intoxicated driving between now and Labor Day.

The checkpoint will be held sometime between 6 p.m. Friday and 6 p.m. Sunday, according to the Center for Traffic Safety.

Sobriety checkpoints, roving DUI patrols, and other enforcement activities organized as part of this program are funded with federal grant money distributed by the state Department of Transportation, and established on roads that have a history of DUI crashes and arrests, according to the center.
