Labor Day DUI Enforcement
Hershey – For Labor Day Weekend the Pennsylvania State Police and other law enforcement agencies will be conducting impaired driver enforcement details to search for drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

If your holiday plans involve alcohol please make sure they also involve staying put or using a designated driver or ride share service for your travel needs.
