Police to crackdown on drunk drivers, boaters

HARRISBURG, Pa. Law enforcement across the state plan on cracking down on drunk drivers and boaters during the Fourth of July weekend.

There are nearly 30,000 registered voters in the mid-state and police want everyone to be safe. Officers will be on the lookout for signs that someone may be drunk.

“They are looking for someone who is a half of a second slow. Who has trouble backing up their trailer who may stumble some. Who slurs their speech, “said Mark Sweepenhiser a Waterways Conservation Officer.

Last year, 16 boating crashes resulted in 17 deaths in Pennsylvania.

The public can also expect to see an increase police presence on the roads.
