MA State Police: DUI Checkpoint This Weekend in Worcester County
Friday, December 26, 2014
Colonel Timothy Alben, Superintendent of Massachusetts State Police, announced the checkpoint on Monday. According to Mass State Police, "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."
The checkpoints will be at undisclosed locations and will be "operated during various hours."
In April, GoLocal Worcester reported on the rights of a driver during a checkpoint. The story can be seen here: DUI Checkpoint This Weekend: What Are Your Rights?
State Police said "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."
