There’s already a ban stopping on-site alcohol consumption at bars tonight. But the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office and local police aren’t taking any chances.
“If you drive hammered, you get nailed,” said Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub.
Tonight, Thanksgiving Eve, roving DUI patrols will be making the rounds from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. to find anyone driving under the influence.
Known as “Blackout Wednesday,” the night before Thanksgiving is typically one of the biggest drinking nights of the year.
In the past, these patrols have had a limited number of officers and focused on specific areas like Street Road.
This time, Weintraub says there will be heightened patrols all over the county.
“These will be DUI patrols to make sure that if you’re celebrating, you do so safely,” said Weintraub.
Tomorrow evening, from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m., police throughout Bucks County will be out on heightened patrols for impaired drivers.
