The Massachusetts State Police will hold a vehicle checkpoint on Saturday, Sept. 3 into the early hours of Sunday, according to State Police.
Police will be stopping vehicles to find potentially drunk drivers between somewhere in Middlesex County, which includes Watertown. As is normal practice, police do not disclose the hours or locations of the checkpoints.
"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," a State Police statement reads. "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."
