As Memorial Day weekend commences, motorists can expect to see extra police patrolling roads throughout Massachusetts. In addition, state police will be conducting sobriety checkpoints at undisclosed public roads in the following counties:
- Suffolk- Thursday, May 26, 2011 into Friday, May 27, 2011
- Worcester- Saturday, June 4, 2011 into Sunday, June 5, 2011
- Middlesex- Friday, May 27, 2011 into Saturday, June 28, 2011
State police and local authorities conduct checkpoints throughout the state to look for drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol. They will also be using these roadblocks to further the “Click it or Ticket” campaign by issuing tickets to drivers not wearing a seatbelt or for unbuckled passengers.
Due to tonight’s final face-off between the Bruins and Tampa Bay in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Semifinals police presence will also be increased in the surrounding areas of TD Garden in Boston. Officers and specialized units, such as the drug and motorcycle units, will be on standby to control fans and motorists exiting the game.
