[ARCHIVED] Frederick Police Conduct Sobriety Checkpoint

Frederick, MD: Officers from the Frederick Police Department stopped and contacted 200 drivers on Saturday, November 1st during a Sobriety Checkpoint operation in the 500 block of West Patrick St. As part of an effort to promote safe driving, officers stopped all vehicles traveling westbound on West Patrick Street in this area between the hours of 10:45 pm and 1:30 am, checking for signs of alcohol impaired driving and other traffic safety violations, and handing out driver safety tips and information regarding impaired driving, speeding and seatbelts.

During the checkpoint, 1 arrest was made for driving while impaired by alcohol. Drivers are again reminded to report possible drunk drivers to the police, and to use caution on the roads. Every 51 minutes, someone in the United States dies in an alcohol-impaired driving crash. The Frederick Police Department urges citizens to be responsible and don’t drink and drive. This enforcement is being conducted in partnership with the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration's Highway Safety Office as part of a year-long campaign to keep Frederick area roads safe for residents and travelers.
