Over 100 police departments throughout New Jersey have received increased funding for the arrest and prosecution of drunk drivers and drivers under the influence of drugs throughout the state. The greater police presence begins now and continues through Labor Day weekend.

“If you’re out there driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the odds are we’re going to stop you and arrest you,” Director of the Division of Highway Traffic Safety director Eric Heitmann said in a statement.

Last summer, during a similar initiative, NJ Police Departments arrested 1,196 people for Driving Under the Influence, issued 4,764 speeding tickets, and and ticketed 1,490 drivers for cell phone violations. Officers set up 20 DWI checkpoints throughout the state.

Municipalities sure to see an increased police presence include: Bloomfield, Dunellen, Edison, Monroe, North Brunswick, Sayreville, Allentown, Brielle, Eatontown, Howell, Middletown, Berkely, Jackson, and Union Township.
