DUI arrests are commonly made on Route 571, Cranbury Road, Clarksville Road and Old Trenton Road. Typically, officers will stop a vehicle and conduct sobriety testing if they smell alcohol. This will usually lead to an arrest and Alcotest breath testing. However, in other cases police may suspect the driver is under the influence of drugs, rather than alcohol.
