The Metropolitan Police Department is slated to set up “sobriety checkpoints” in the neighborhood tonight and tomorrow night, the Washington Regional Alcohol Program tweeted today. The nonprofit organization works to prevent drunk driving.
The checkpoints will run for 2 to 3 hours each night, MPD spokesman Lt. Sean Conboy said in an email. MPD has set up checkpoints in Adams Morgan in the past, he added.
To discourage drunk driving on Halloween, the Washington Regional Alcohol Program will offer adults who are at least 21 years old free cab rides home from 10 p.m. Saturday to 4 a.m. Sunday. By calling a taxi through 800-200-8294, people can get their fares covered up to $30.
