Howard County Police to Conduct Sobriety Checkpoints

Sobriety Checkpoints Used to Make DUI Arrests

The Howard County Police Department announced that it will conduct a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location this weekend to promote awareness and reduce the number of drunk drivers on the roads. The checkpoint is part of the agency’s traffic safety initiative to keep Howard County roads safe.

The sobriety checkpoint will be clearly marked with signs, lights and uniformed officers. Howard County Police Officers will use both marked and unmarked vehicles.
