Memorial Day weekend is the traditional start of the summer travel season, and despite high gas prices motorists are expected to leave the city in substantial numbers. For those heading west, the trip will have an extra consideration as the New York Port Authority will be setting up drunk driving checkpoints.
Motorists using the George Washington Bridge, the Lincoln Tunnel and the Holland Tunnel will be subject to traffic stops for driving while intoxicated in New York City. The checkpoints will be operated between 10pm Friday and 6am Saturday. Officials acknowledge overnight traffic is one of the busiest times on the road, so they have suspended scheduled maintenance and construction work on six crossings out of Manhattan. In addition, extra PATH trains will be running.
