(PIKESVILLE, MD – Feb 7, 2011) – Maryland state troopers arrested dozens of suspected drunk drivers and issued more than 3,000 traffic citations and warnings as part of increased patrols yesterday.
Troopers arrested 42 drunk drivers and issued 1,653 traffic citations and 1,604 warnings as part of increased patrols on Sunday, February 6, 2011. Troopers also made 22 criminal arrests and recovered two guns. Each of the 22 Maryland State Police barracks had special DUI saturation patrols assigned yesterday.
DUI arrests seemed to be spread geographically across the state. Troopers at the Easton Barrack on the Eastern Shore, JFK Memorial Highway Barrack on I-95, and the College Park Barrack on I-495 made four DUI arrests in their patrol areas. Three DUI arrests were made at the Salisbury Barrack in Wicomico County, the Golden Ring Barrack in Baltimore County, the Prince Frederick Barrack in Calvert County, and the Berlin Barrack in Worcester County.
Troopers at the Westminster Barrack handled a fatal crash late Saturday night in which one person was killed. Preliminary information does not indicate that alcohol was a factor.
Maryland’s deteriorating roads are hitting drivers where it hurts—the wallet—and failure to improve transportation funding could harm the state’s economic health, according to a report released Tuesday by a national transportation research organization.
(Annapolis has wasted millions already before and after the economic bust. They had opportunity after opportunity to correctly prioritize spending. Instead they spent money on what progressives do best. They spent money on palatial schools for votes. They did everything but consider the ramifications of their waste and yet they were all reelected. Marylanders have no one to blame but themselves.
Whether anyone realizes it or not. We’re out of money. But please, enjoy the palatial new indoor pool in Calvert Calvert County or the multi-story high school going in in Prince Frederick. Your progressives at work. Roads and traffic safety are just a nuisance. Vallario proved that last year.)
Deputy Sheriff’s will be conducting Saturation Patrols and DUI Checkpoints day and night through the holiday season to prevent impaired operators from driving on St. Mary’s County roadways.
TheBayNet has the story:
(Saturation patrols with officers on the look out for drunk drivers is by far the best method to catch the scofflaws. Drink and drive in St. Mary’s County and you WILL get caught.)
As party-goers celebrate the holidays with friends and family, everyone should heed Maryland State Police’s warning to keep the party off the road or be ready to face the consequences. Law Enforcement will be out in force beginning December 20th cracking down on anyone caught drunk behind the wheel.

Attention all Drivers! Important law change, regarding traffic citations. See your (Nixel) email for further details.
If you receive a traffic citation in Maryland, a new law has changed what you are required to do in response to that citation. The new law requires that you must:
1. Request a trial date at the date, time and place established by the District Court; or
2. Request a hearing regarding sentencing and disposition in lieu of a trial, (meaning you do not dispute the truth of the facts as alleged in the citation, but you with to be heard regarding sentencing); or
3. Pay the full amount of the preset fine.
The law requires that you make one of these three choices and notify the District Court within 30 days of receiving the traffic citation. (Instructions are printed on your copy of the citation.) If not, the MD Motor Vehicle Administration will be notified and may take action to suspend your driver’s license. The law does not apply to traffic citations for “must appear” offenses. The court will automatically notify you of a trial date.
For further information, visit www.mdcourts.gov/district or call 1-800-492-2656

The man was identified as Joseph Wesley Raymond Hall, age 20. The accident occurred in the area of Leitches Wharf Road approximately one mile from Stoakley Road in Calvert County.
