LINDEN – Linden police arrested 18 impaired drivers and issued 201 summonses for other traffic violations during an 18-day blitz targeting drunk driving.
The annual crackdown, from Aug. 21 through Sept. 7, was funded by a $6,000 federal grant provided through the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety.
According to Traffic Bureau Commander Sgt. Michael Babulski, the crackdown was effective in getting alcohol-impaired drivers off the roadways in addition to employing high-visibility enforcement to deter others from driving drunk.
Although the campaign has ended, the police department continually works to prevent alcohol-impaired driving in the community.
