NEWBERRY — The City of Newberry and Newberry County Council recently signed a proclamation for Labor Day that states their support for and encouragement for the use of sobriety checkpoints by law enforcement.

Mayor Foster Senn and members of Newberry County Council were joined by representatives from the Newberry County Sheriff’s Department, City of Newberry Police Department, S.C. Highway Patrol, MADD Newberry County, City Council and legislative representatives.

Sobriety Checkpoints reduce impaired driving, save lives and get dangerous people off the road.

Max Bell, manager of Sonic in Newberry, donates food and drink coupons each year to local law enforcement agencies, which in turn use them to reward drivers who successfully go through a checkpoint stop.
