  1. Ur worst nightmare says:

    Thanks for letting everyone know…wanna really catch intoxicated drivers?! Don’t announce it on the internet

    • MD State Police sent it to us to be released to the public its required.

      Why do police announce DUI checkpoints?

      If the police don’t publicize a checkpoint it can be considered a detention without reasonable suspicion, and that violates your Fourth Amendment rights. … 10 states in all have bans on sobriety checkpoints. Fortunately for police, the publication of checkpoints hasn’t affected their ability to arrest drunk drivers.
