The Fairfax County Police Department patrols the roadways for drunk and impaired drivers. Sobriety checkpoints are one of the tools that police use to make sure drivers are not consuming alcohol and getting behind the wheel. Along with publicity and awareness, checkpoints have proven to be effective in the fight against drunk driving. Each week, hundreds of motorists pass through checkpoints and many are screened for alcohol use.
