A press release from the department says the 11p-to-3a stationary crackdown, funded by a state grant, will be supplemented by mobile patrols throughout the weekend.

In New Jersey, two people a day on average die as a result of alcohol related crashes.

A report in today’s Daily Record of Morristown says DWI-related fatalities dropped 6.1 percent last year, to 724, from 771 in 2006.

Nationally, DWI deaths were down 3.6 percent, though in half the states, alcohol related deaths involving motorcycles were on the rise, according to the Record.
