The North Hills DUI Task Force charged three people for allegedly driving under the influence during roving patrols conducted Aug. 31 in Ross, McCandless and West View, according to authorities.

Police officers stopped 60 vehicles for various traffic violations during the patrols. Field sobriety tests were administered to seven of the people who were stopped, which resulted in the three DUI arrests.

One person also was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and another was charged with disorderly conduct.

Citations were issued for vehicle code violations to 18 of the drivers who were stopped.

The task force is staffed by officers from Shaler, McCandless, West View, Millvale, Ross, O’Hara, Indiana and the Northern Regional Police Department.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
