"There has been an increase in impaired driving especially driving under the influence of alcohol," said Christie Hall, the public relations specialist of Acadia National Park.
Acadia National Park has always been a family fun place. To ensure it stays that way, the park will be conducting rolling sobriety checkpoints.
"We want to be as proactive as possible," said Hall, "So if there are instances where we can reduce the risk of impaired driving, we want to put every effort into that."
From 2014 to 2015 there was a 3.2 percent increase of fatalities due to alcohol impaired driving. But alcohol isn't the only thing they are watching out for. Officials are also looking to identify drivers impaired by marijuana and other drugs.
"To have one of those memories be a really sad memory of maybe losing a family member or being in a really bad car accident," said Hall.
The safety checkpoints will continue throughout the summer.
