BCoPD reminds those hitting the road this Labor Day weekend that drinking while driving and distracted driving are dangerous and against the law.

Baltimore County police officers will be assigned to “saturation” details throughout the county Friday, August 29 through Monday September 1. A saturation detail consists of officers who patrol areas that throughout the year had a high concentration of DWI (Driving While Impaired), and DUI (Driving Under the Influence) offenses.

Anyone driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level of .08 or higher is considered legally drunk and will be arrested.

Remember too, that a driver may have a BAC level lower than .08 and yet be incapable of driving. Driving while “buzzed” is dangerous too because the driver’s reaction time is impaired. Driving “buzzed” is considered a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) offense. This is punishable by a fine or possible arrest.

Officers also will be on the lookout for anyone texting or using a handheld cellphone while driving.

Think before you get behind the wheel. Texting and drunk driving is a lethal cocktail.

If you know you will be drinking alcohol, arrange for a designated driver. You’ll save your life and the lives of others.

On March 2 at approximately 2:00 a.m., an off-duty Corporal from the White Marsh precinct was arrested in Bel Air for Driving Under the Influence. His police powers have been suspended and he will be on administrative duty pending the outcome of the court case and internal investigation.

Any information on the incident itself will be handled by the Bel Air Police.
