Sobriety checkpoint slated this week - 03/11

CUMBERLAND — The Allegany County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location this week 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 county roads safe for residents and travelers.

The checkpoint will be clearly marked with signs and lights, and uniformed officers will utilize both marked and unmarked vehicles and will be checking for violations, including driving under the influence of alcohol, failure to use seat belts and failure to use child safety seats.

Last year the sheriff’s office investigated 183 crashed, resulting in 134 injuries and three fatalities.
