The Laurel Police Department is reminding everyone to drive sober or get pulled over at their Sobriety Checkpoint on Friday, February 1, 2019, from 10:00pm to 3:00am in the 100 block of Second Street.

Laurel Mayor Craig A. Moe and Deputy Chief Keven Gray believe that conducting periodic sobriety checkpoints raises public awareness and informs citizens about the efforts that are being used to identify and apprehend impaired drivers. 

Remember, drinking impairs your mental, as well as your physical, coordination, which are all vital requirements to driving a vehicle safely! The consequences to driving impaired are getting arrested, losing your driver’s license and potentially the loss of life!

You may ask why we publicize the sobriety checkpoints in advance. We do it because it’s the law, mandated by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1990.

For more information, please contact Sgt. Charles Boswell of the Laurel Police Department at 301-498-0092.
