FCPD: Sobriety Checkpoint To Be Rescheduled


Fairfax County police plan to reschedule a sobriety checkpoint soon. A checkpoint planned for late Friday was cancelled due to freezing temperatures and a high wind chill. The checkpoint was scheduled to run from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m.

FCPD regularly holds checkpoints in various parts of the county in order to monitor for intoxicated drivers. The 56-mile Reston District covers Reston, Great Falls, and parts of Vienna, Oak Hill and Herndon.

Along with publicity and awareness, checkpoints have proven to be effective in the fight against drunk driving, police say.
