Massachusetts State Police Sobriety Checkpoint Planned For Thursday, May 23 through Friday, May 24 in Suffolk County

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 23, 2013
The Massachusetts State Police have announced that they will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location  in Suffolk County beginning Thursday night and continuing through early Friday morning. Suffolk County consists of all the neighborhoods of Boston, Chelsea, and Revere. Here is a map to view these areas. The police are only required to provide advance notice of which county the sobriety checkpoint will be located, not the city or town. In its press release, Colonel Timothy P. Alben, Superintendent of the Massachusetts 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.” Typically, the police briefly stop every vehicle that enters the roadblock.  If the driver exhibits signs of alcohol or drug use, then they are sent over to a secondary area for further screening.  This “screening area” is where the next group of police are located, and their job is to administer field sobriety tests and preliminary breath tests to operators who are suspected of operating under the influence. If you are interested in ways to protect yourself, the easiest advice is not to drive after consuming alcohol.  Short of this, watch as attorney Steven Brooks explains why you should or shouldn’t take a Breathalyzer if you are pulled over for a DUI. If you are arrested for a DUI, contact Brooks & Crowley LLP and speak with an experienced DUI attorney.
