Sobriety Checkpoint Tonight in Eastern Loudoun County

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint tonight, Friday, March 19, in eastern Loudoun County. The sobriety checkpoint will be held from 10 p.m. this evening until to 3 a.m. Saturday morning.

The Sheriff’s Office designed the checkpoints to raise public awareness and to discourage impaired driving.

“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.

Members of the Sheriff’s Office Auxiliary Unit and volunteers from the Loudoun Chapter of MADD will assist with the checkpoint.

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