The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the Maryland Highway Safety Office by participating in the Click It or Ticket High Visibility Enforcement and outreach efforts during the week of Thanksgiving.  The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting occupant protection enforcement in various areas throughout Calvert County.  Occupants of motor vehicles are required by law to buckle up.  If you are stopped for not being buckled up you will receive a citation with a fine of $83.00.

Calvert County Sheriff’s Office deputies will be conducting Sobriety Checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols in an effort to remove impaired drivers from Calvert County roadways. The Sheriff's Office is dedicated to reducing the number of alcohol related fatalities in support of the Maryland Highway Safety Office's "Towards Zero Deaths" campaign. Historically there has been an increase in the number of impaired driver related crashes and DUI arrests during the holiday season. Grant funding from the Maryland Highway Safety Office will be used to place additional deputies on our roadways for the specific task of locating impaired drivers.

Sheriff Mike Evans would ask that "if you consume any alcoholic beverages that you please find a sober driver and help reduce the number of fatal and serious crashes on the roadways of Calvert County this Holiday Season".
