Weekend Sobriety Checkpoints Announced

Have fun and stay safe. Patch loves ya... just sayin'...


Massachusetts State Police (MSP) will implement sobriety checkpoints Friday, April 6 and Saturday, April 7 in Worcester County, Colonel Marian J. McGovern, superintendent of the MSP, announced.

The goal of the program is to educate motorists and increase their awareness of the importance of detecting and removing drivers who operate under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, she said.

The checkpoints will be operated during varied hours and the selection of vehicles will not be arbitrary, she said. Safety will be assured, and any inconveniences to motorists will be minimized with advance notice to reduce fear and anxiety, she said.

Why can't we do illegal alien checkpoints as well?
