Checkpoints to be set up all over SoMd this weekend

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office along with the Maryland State Police will be conducting sobriety checkpoints throughout the weekend.


The Maryland State Police and the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office, will be conducting a Sobriety Checkpoint on Saturday, August 17, 2019, in St. Mary’s County, Maryland. Motorists are encouraged to appoint a designated driver or use public or other alternative transportation if you are planning on consuming alcohol.

If you do drink, you are simply asked to please not drive. There is zero-tolerance for driving while impaired by alcohol and/or drugs. It’s not worth the risk…to your life or the life of another.

No excuses will be accepted as there is no substitute for sobriety when behind the wheel. We will be doing our part. We kindly ask that you do yours. This effort is designed to educate the public and make our communities a safe place to live, work and visit.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
