Reminder to Drive Safely During the Holiday Season

Gaithersburg Police Remind Citizens to Drive Safe during the Holiday Season

The Gaithersburg Police Department would like to remind citizens to drive safely during the Thanksgiving holiday. “Officers will be out in force over the holiday weekend focusing on speed enforcement, seatbelt compliance, aggressive and impaired drivers. Your safety is our number one priority,” said Chief of Police Mark P. Sroka.

To stay safe this Thanksgiving season, the Gaithersburg Police encourage drivers to plan ahead and be patient when traveling. Drivers should not text or make any handheld cell phone calls. If you find yourself to be impaired, call a friend or family member, or use public transportation, such as buses or cabs. If you see a driver you think may be impaired or is driving their vehicle in an unsafe manner, keep a safe distance and call the non-emergency number at301-279-8000. Be descriptive of the vehicle and, if possible, provide a tag number.
