ROSEDALE, MD—The Maryland State Police will likely be stepping up enforcement and protecting a watch out for impaired drivers over Thanksgiving weekend.
From 10 p.m. on Wednesday evening to 2 a.m. on Thursday morning, troopers from the Golden Ring Barrack will likely be conducting a sobriety checkpoint. The objective will likely be to find impaired drivers and to advertise public consciousness of the risks of impaired driving.
Enhanced enforcement efforts will proceed over the weekend. Between Wednesday and Sunday, troopers from every of the 23 Maryland State Police barracks statewide will likely be focusing enforcement efforts on impaired driving, aggressive driving, dashing, distracted driving, and different violations that usually contribute to freeway tragedies, particularly throughout vacation seasons.
Further troopers will likely be working time beyond regulation assignments funded by freeway security grants from the Maryland Division of Transportation Motor Automobile Administration’s Freeway Security Workplace.
