Sheriff's Office Conducts Sobriety Checkpoint at Cascades Parkway and Church Road

Speaking of driving under the influence (see earlier post today about SoberRide), a sobriety checkpoint held this past Friday night in the Sterling area saw four people arrested for driving under the influence. The checkpoint, held at the intersection of Cascades Parkway and Church Road, had 668 vehicles pass through. A total of 19 vehicles were further screened. Four motorists were charged with DUI.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office currently conducts one checkpoint per month throughout the year and holds additional checkpoints during the holidays.

"Our ultimate goal is to ensure the roads are safe for all motorists by achieving voluntary compliance with the drinking and driving laws," said Loudoun County Sheriff Steve Simpson. "If you drink and drive, we're going to catch you," Simpson warned.
