Police in Bucks County to conduct DUI patrols New Year's Eve

Several police departments in Bucks County will be conducting DUI patrols on New Year's Eve and early New Year's Day, the county district attorney's office said.

Officers from Plumstead, Upper Southampton, Warrington, Middletown and Richland Townships will hit the streets at 10 p.m. Monday and police their jurisdictions until 3 a.m. Tuesday.

“Please celebrate the New Year safely with friends and family. Don’t drink or do drugs and drive,” said Bucks County District Attorney Matthew D. Weintraub.

“Police departments all over the county are on high alert for DUIs tonight. If you drive hammered, you’ll get nailed.”

Anyone celebrating Monday night should plan to stay off the road or find a sober ride home.

The efforts to prevent drunk driving through the patrols are funded by a PennDOT grant.
