Police plan checkpoint

April 23, 1993

Howard County police will conduct a sobriety checkpoint this weekend to help curb drunken drivers. The checkpoint is the second this year.

The first, on U.S. Route 1 in North Laurel on Jan. 30, led to the arrests of 13 people who were charged with driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Last year there were three checkpoints, which netted 42 arrests, police said.

Since the program started five years ago, almost 300 people have been charged with drunken or drugged driving, police said. More than 30 have been charged with other criminal violations.
