A new Sobriety Checkpoint has been issued for the area by Massachusetts State Police.

Colonel Christopher S. Mason, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, announced that a “Sobriety Checkpoint” will be implemented by the Massachusetts State Police on a Public Way in Bristol County. 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 will take place starting Friday, August 26, 2022 into Saturday, August 27, 2022 due to a grant by Highway Safety Division of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security.
