SOBRIETY CHECK POINT SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY AUGUST 22: The Maryland State Police Prince Frederick Barrack will be conducting a Sobriety Check on Friday August 22. The check point is an intense enforcement initiative targeting drivers who are operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs in Calvert County.
This sobriety check point is a combined effort between the Maryland State Police, the Calvert Sheriff's Office and the State Highway Administration. The location of the check point will be withheld from the public until after the operation is over. The check point will be within the county boundaries of Calvert. A post operation press release will be placed out on Monday August 25, 2014 with the total numbers of vehicles stopped at the check point along with the statistical numbers as it relates to offenses charged both traffic and criminal. During the check point there will be proper signs and notifications in place according to the law. We ask that if you are operating a vehicle just obey all traffic laws and signs as you would normally do.
Drinking and Driving is still identified as one of the major causes in traffic fatalities on our highways. The Check Points purpose is to arrest intoxicated drivers, but more importantly we use the check point to educate drivers about the risks of drinking and driving. The Maryland State Police will use this check point to ensure cars, motorcycles, trucks, buses, commercial vehicles and their drivers operate their vehicles while not impaired making all of Calvert County citizens safer and to promote highway safety in Maryland.
