Alexandria Police to Conduct DWI Checkpoint

On January 29, Alexandria police will conduct a sobriety checkpoint to deter and apprehend intoxicated drivers.  The DUI crackdown will begin at 8:30 P.M. on Friday, January 29, and will continue until 6:30 A.M. on Saturday, January 30.  All motorists will be stopped and drivers will be checked to assure that their abilities to drive have not been impaired by alcohol or drugs.

Chief of Police Earl L. Cook reminds drivers that the maximum penalty in Virginia for the first conviction for driving under the influence is 12 months in jail, a $2,500 fine and a 12-month suspension of driving privileges. In addition, there are mandatory jail terms associated with these offenses, depending upon the blood alcohol content of the driver. Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles administrative fees may apply as well.
