Frederick Police to Conduct Sobriety Checkpoint


FREDERICK, MD – The Frederick Police Department will conduct a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location this weekend to promote awareness and reduce the number of alcohol-impaired drivers on the roads.

The checkpoint is part of the agency’s traffic safety initiative to keep roads safe for residents and travelers. The checkpoint will be clearly marked with signs, lights, and uniformed officers. The department conducts several checkpoints throughout the year, in addition to utilizing special enforcement details specifically targeting drunk and drugged drivers.

Checkpoints conducted by Frederick Police are part of the Toward Zero Deaths Campaign and are funded in part by a grant from the Maryland Department of Transportation. The FPD conducts checkpoints in partnership with Maryland State Police and with support from Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Traffic crashes continue to be a leading cause of death for Maryland residents. Police urge drivers to always drive sober, obey the speed limit, wear a seat belt and eliminate distractions. If you see an impaired driver on the road, please call 911.
