Roadblocks for OUI set



ACADIA NAT’L PARK — Park rangers will be setting up sobriety checkpoints and stepping up enforcement of traffic laws throughout the fall, starting Sept. 3, in an effort to identify drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs.

The enhanced enforcement is part of a nationwide traffic safety campaign sponsored by the National Park Service in cooperation with the federal Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Acadia officials said rangers will be working closely with the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office and the Bar Harbor, Mount Desert and Southwest Harbor police departments in the effort to catch those guilty of driving while under the influence (OUI) on roads in and around the park.
