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.

The Baltimore County Police Department will partner with Towson University during Tigerfest, scheduled April 25-26. Baltimore County Police will assist with any neighborhood problems connected to Tigerfest.

Special enforcement patrols will be visible daily from 11 a.m. until 3 a.m. in the Donnybrook, Knollwood, Towson Manor and Kenilworth Avenue communities. These patrols are assigned to address any problems caused by Tigerfest in residential neighborhoods.

Student and Resident Safety a Priority

Officers will patrol affected neighborhoods to address disorderly, violent, and illegal behavior such as:

  • Assaults
  • Loud noise or music
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Setting fires
  • Sexual assaults
  • Indecent exposure/urinating in public
  • Destruction of property
  • Alcohol violations, such as underage possession or open container violations
  • Possession of illegal drugs

Last year, six people were charged with civil or criminal offenses during the neighborhood patrols. Most of the charges involved alcohol-related offenses, such as underage possession of alcoholic beverages, possession of false identification, and open containers.

Baltimore County Police remind everyone to drink responsibly, make good choices regarding personal safety, and respect neighbors who are not participating in the festivities.
