Efforts are underway by the Camden County Sheriff’s Department to make the roadways safer. Deputies will be conducting DWI sobriety checkpoints throughout the month of July. The Sheriff’s Department says checkpoints are utilized in an effort to apprehend impaired motorists before they injure others and destroy property. In addition to removing drunk drivers, checkpoints are aimed at increasing awareness of driving impaired and the consequences for those who do. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than ten thousand people died in alcohol related crashes in 2012…one every 51 minutes. Impaired vehicle crashes cost more than $37 billion dollars annually.
