Acadia National Park Cracking Down on Impaired Drivers

Beginning August 10th and going through the Fall, Acadia National Park Rangers will begin safety checkpoints and enhanced traffic enforcement efforts in the Park to identify drivers impaired by alcohol, drugs, and marijuana. Park Rangers will stop and make brief contact with all drivers passing through safety checkpoints while making every effort to minimize any inconvenience.
Possession of marijuana is illegal in Acadia National Park, despite the fact it is legal to possess 2.5 ounces of pot in Maine. Possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle is illegal and no person under the age of 21 may possess alcohol, just like throughout the rest of Maine.

In a press release Superintendent Kevin Schneider said  “The National Park Service is working to ensure that visitors to Acadia National Park have a safe and enjoyable trip. We appreciate the patience and cooperation of those visitors who may encounter a safety checkpoint in the park.”
