Motor Vehicle Injury – Alcohol-Impaired Driving: Publicized Sobriety Checkpoint Programs

Description of Resource: 
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends publicized sobriety checkpoint programs to reduce alcohol-impaired driving. Publicized sobriety checkpoint programs are a form of high visibility enforcement where law enforcement officers systematically stop drivers to assess their degree of alcohol impairment. Media efforts to publicize the enforcement activity are an integral part of these programs.
