The Farmington Police Department will conduct a DUI checkpoint on Friday, May 11 from 6 p.m. through 2 a.m. on Route 4 (Farmington Ave) at Westerberg Drive.The checkpoint will be clearly marked and vehicles will be selected to move through the check lanes on a pre-set basis to ensure objectivity and timeliness.
Our goal is to prevent DUI related serious injury and fatal accidents. Drunk drivers place everyone on the road in danger, and we are working hard to ensure motorists have a safe place to live, work, and drive.
Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the Connecticut State Department of Transportation. The Farmington Police Department is working in partnership with the North Central Traffic Enforcement Team to educate the community on traffic safety issues and to prevent DUI related traffic accidents.
The North Central Traffic Team consists of the following towns: Avon, Bloomfield, Canton, Farmington, Simsbury, Suffield, Windsor and Windsor Locks. Each of these team members may have officers participating in the sobriety checkpoint.
