Officials with New Jersey State Police have announced that a sobriety checkpoint will be set up in Cumberland County Friday night.

Police say the checkpoint will be set up in the Maurice River Township area of Cumberland County.

Police set up the checkpoints, say police, "In an effort to make our roads safer and reduce crashes attributed to driving while under the influence."

Troopers will be looking for signs of impairment due to alcohol or drugs. If you plan on drinking, have a designated driver, arrange for transportation or stay where you are. It’s not worth the risk of hurting or killing yourself, a friend, a loved one, or innocent motorist.

If you see someone you suspect is under the influence behind the wheel, State Police urge you to call #77 from a hands-free mobile device to make a report. The more information you can supply police, the better.
