ISP steps up DUI enforcement

More than 100 roadside safety checks are planned through Sunday.

Last Independence Day, four people died in crashes on state highways. Two of those deaths involved a drunk driver.

State police say anyone hosting a July 4th party can be prosecuted if alcohol is served to someone who is involved in a drunken driving crash.

Officers are also reminding people that if they plan to drink over the holiday, designate a sober driver.

And they want to make sure all drivers and passengers buckle up.
