By: Rich Hosford

The Massachusetts State Police will once again be on the lookout for intoxicated drivers this weekend.

According to the State Police they will hold a sobriety checkpoint somewhere in Middlesex County on Saturday, August 4 into Sunday, August 5.

Colonel Kerry A. Gilpin, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, said 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.  

Colonel Gilpin added that the checkpoint 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.
