My husband and I were driving around the city on Saturday and went from Trinidad to H street to U street from about 2-4 in the afternoon. In all of these locations there was a police presence blocking at least one street, looking into car windows and pulling certain cars over. I was curious if this was random or if you had heard of a crackdown or checkpoint?”
I believe sometimes they do this when MPD has an “all hands on deck weekend” but I didn’t hear anything about that this weekend. Did anyone else happen to notice any checkpoints or random cars getting pulled over?
Update from MPD:
“There was a traffic initiative in the 1000 block of H Street NE.”
