Check Point Strike Force
Checkpoint Strikeforce is an intensive law enforcement mobilization to get impaired drivers off our roads, stopping over 400,000 drivers last year at sobriety checkpoints and in saturation patrols in the multi-state area. The strikeforce uses checkpoints and patrols when and where drunk driving is most likely to occur. It combines high visibility checkpoints and paid advertising to create awareness of enforcement and educate the public about dangers and consequences.
Child Safety Seats
Child restraint devices are required for children through the age of seven (until 8th birthday). Safety seats must be properly used and approved by Department of Transportation standards. There is no height or weight requirement associated with this law. The Virginia law is based solely on age. If you have questions about proper installation, the Lawrenceville Police Department may be able to help. A $50 civil penalty fine is imposed for failure to have a child in a child restraint device. Any person found guilty a second or subsequent time, on different dates, will be fined up to $500. There are assistance programs for low-income residents who cannot afford a safety seat. Contact Virginia Department of Health, Division of Injury and Violence Prevention at 1-800-732-8333 for more information.
