Designated driver alert: The Hartford Police Department has announced it will conduct an 8-hour-long DUI enforcement checkpoint starting at 5 p.m. Friday in the city’s North End.
The traffic division will set up near 110 Barbour St. Hartford police funds the checkpoint through a state grant.
Cityline occasionally receives these DUI enforcement announcements a day or two before they happen.
In case you’re wondering why the checkpoints are not a surprise, here’s a good explanation from the Valley Independent Sentinel, which explored the question in 2012: Click here for that post.
