Be Thankful - Know Your Limit
Ahead of Thanksgiving the Annapolis Police Department is holding a Know Your Limit event on Saturday, 11/17 from 7pm to 11pm at Market Space. Officers will be on foot near the Market House offering free breathalyzer tests. Volunteer participants will be asked if they feel safe to drive a car, and then blow into a portable breathalyzer. Participants will be told what their blood alcohol content is and given an educational card with information on alcohol consumption and options to get home safely. For this event we are also teaming up with the Annapolis Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) Coalition to educate people about binge drinking. According to the 2016 Maryland Young Adult Survey on Alcohol (MYSA) half of 18 to 25 year olds who drink are binge drinking and don’t realize it.
