[ARCHIVED] Frederick Police Conduct Sobriety Checkpoint

Officers from the Frederick Police Department stopped and contacted approximately 700 drivers on Friday, July 6, 2018 during a Sobriety Checkpoint operation in the 1000 block of West Patrick Street. As part of an effort to promote safe driving, officers stopped all vehicles traveling westbound on West Patrick Street between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. Officers checked for signs of alcohol impaired driving and other traffic safety violations, and provided drivers with a DUI Checkpoint pamphlet with information regarding impaired driving.

One DUI arrest was made by OFC. S. Payne.


Checkpoints conducted by the Frederick Police Department are part of the Toward Zero Deaths campaign and are funded by a grant from the Maryland Department of Transportation. During this checkpoint the Department had two representatives from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) as well as assistance from the Maryland State Chemical Test and Alcohol Unit. As always the Department appreciates these organizations support.


Over 1,700 people have died in Maryland over the last decade from a car accident involving a drunk driver. Drive Sober. If you observe someone driving impaired please contact the police and report the incident.



Released by OFC. Lauren Sinay
