Sobriety Checkpoint This Weekend

The State Police will conduct a sobriety checkpoint this weekend in Essex County.

Make sure you have a designated driver if you're going out this weekend. 

Colonel Marian J. McGovern, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, announced that a “Sobriety Checkpoint” will be implemented by the Massachusetts State Police on a public way in Essex County this weekend - Friday and Saturday.

 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.  It 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.

The checkpoint location is not released by the State Police ahead of time.
