WORCESTER – The Massachusetts State Police [MSP] have announced that there will be a sobriety checkpoint next weekend in Worcester County from Saturday evening, March 17, into Sunday morning, March 18.

According to MSP, the purpose of the sobriety checkpoint is to “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.”

The checkpoint will be operated during random hours. The State Police assures that officers will select vehicles at random and that safety will be a priority.

The sobriety checkpoint is possible thanks to a grant from the Highway Safety Division of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security.
