FCPD: Sobriety Checkpoint in Reston Friday Night

Sobriety checkpoint/FCPDDrive carefully this holiday weekend.

Fairfax County Police will be holding a sobriety checkpoint in the Reston District between Friday at 11 p.m. and Saturday at 2 a.m.

FCPD regularly holds checkpoints in various parts of the county in order to monitor for intoxicated drivers. They do not announce the location ahead of time.

The last Reston checkpoint took place in late April at Walnut Branch Road and the Fairfax County Parkway.

Police said 623 vehicles passed through that screening point, resulting in one DWI arrest, one criminal charge, and three traffic summonses.
