Sobriety Checkpoint Tonight, Friday, April 6

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint tonight, Friday, April 6, beginning at 11 p.m. 

"We want Loudoun residents to make the smart choice, don't drink and drive," said Loudoun County Sheriff Michael L. Chapman. "Through aggressive enforcement we hope to keep Loudoun's roads safe," he added.   

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

  1. I find it absolutely ludicrous for any law enforcement agency at any time to announce they are conducting a sobriety checkpoint. I thought the idea was to catch the drunk and impaired drivers, NOT to warn them to stay away from a particular area. Hey, since you announce sobriety checkpoints, could you announce where and when you will be for traffic tickets? Or announce when you will be on meal or coffee breaks - time periods when there will be less of a police presence? Publicly announcing sobriety checkpoints makes as much sense as detailing law enforcement movements and patrols. Or you should just call them dummy checkpoints.
