Sobriety Checkpoint Tonight in Eastern Loudoun County

The Loudoun County Sheriffs Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint tonight, Friday, December 17, in Eastern Loudoun County. The sobriety checkpoint will be held from 10 p.m. this evening to 3 a.m. on Saturday, December 18.

The Sheriffs Office designed the checkpoints to raise public awareness and to discourage impaired driving. 
The Sheriffs 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.   
Members of the Sheriff?s Office Auxiliary Unit and volunteers from the Loudoun Chapter of MADD will assist with the checkpoint.
