Beginning Friday night into Saturday morning, the Massachusetts State Police will operate a “Sobriety Checkpoint” in Worcester County.
According to the State Police, the purpose of the checkpoint is to further educate drivers and passengers and strengthen the area’s awareness for the need of detecting and removing individuals that operate a vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
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.
