Just in time for the Independence Day weekend, police could have a new tool in the fight against drunk drivers.
A bill that worked its way through the state legislature will help clear a legal hurdle faced by the police.
A recent state Supreme Court ruling had suspended drunk driving checkpoints involving officers from multiple police departments, however, communities with formal agreements on the books were in the clear.
Governor Wolf is expected to sign the bill, House Bill 1614, into law, having it go in to effect immediately.
