State Police to Hold Sobriety Checkpoint

 (Harford County, Md.)   The holiday season is upon us, and as friends and family travel across the country, the Maryland State Police will be out stopping impaired drivers by targeting those who put lives in danger. As you prepare to celebrate all of the festivities, keep in mind that impairment by alcohol or drugs can be deadly.

On Wednesday, November 21, 2018 the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint in Harford County. The goal will be to locate impaired drivers and to promote public awareness of the dangers of impaired driving.

The cost of a ride home is cheap. Download NHTSA’s SaferRide mobile app available for Android and Apple devices or one of the rideshare apps. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspensions and other expenses that can exceed $10,000.

The Maryland State Police would like to wish everyone a safe and sober holiday season.
