STATE POLICE SOBRIETY CHECKPOINT

Colonel Thomas G. Robbins announced that a “Sobriety Checkpoint” will be implemented by the Massachusetts State Police on Secondary State Highways. The purpose is to further educate the motoring public and strengthen the public’s awareness to the need of detecting and removing those motorists who operate under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs from our roadways. They will be operated during varied hours, the selection of vehicles will not be arbitrary, safety will be assured, and any inconveniences to motorists will be minimized with advance notice to reduce fear and anxiety.

THANKS TO A GRANT PROVIDED BY THE GOVERNOR’S HIGHWAY SAFETY BUREAU, a “SOBRIETY CHECKPOINT” WILL BE HELD IN THE COUNTY LISTED BELOW: COUNTY: Suffolk
