Watch Out: MA State Police Announce Sobriety Checkpoints This Weekend
Here's a heads up for this Mother's Day Weekend.
The Massachusetts State Police are very good about telling you where they will be holding sobriety check points. Yes, they actually post a press release you can find on Twitter, or any other social platform, stating this information.
The press release from the Framingham Headquarters says that a sobriety checkpoint will be implemented in the Massachusetts county of Middlesex on Friday, May 6, and Saturday, May 7.
This is paid for by a grant from the Highway Safety Division of the Executive Office Of Public Safety and Security.
According to MSP News, "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."
If you want to celebrate Mother's Day with your mom, wife, partner, sister, or any other mom, please do so with a designated driver.
The State Police of all states are out to make the roads safer, and keep dangerous, intoxicated, or impaired drivers off the road.
Keep the roads safe this weekend for mom, and every day for all of us. It's all about education and responsibility for ourselves and our families.
