Roadside sobriety checkpoints will be in effect across the island this weekend, the Bermuda Police Service has warned.

A police spokesman said that checkpoints will be conducted in seven parishes — Southampton, Warwick, Paget, Pembroke, Devonshire, Smith’s and Hamilton Parish — between Thursday and Sunday.

“BPS officers from the Community Policing Division, Tactical Operations and Roads Policing Unit will operate the checkpoints, which are in addition to general patrol officers enforcing Operation Vega,” the spokesman added.

“Please plan ahead and do your part by not driving or riding impaired.

“If you are intending to go out and socialise, make sure you have arranged for a designated driver, taxi or another responsible transportation service to get you to your destination safely.”
