#2) Sobriety Checkpoint Saturday Night Into Sunday Morning
The Massachusetts State Police will be holding a Sobriety Checkpoint in Middlesex County on Saturday, June 5, 2021 into Sunday, June 6, 2021.
Wilmington is one of the 54 cities and towns in Middlesex County.
The purpose of the Sobriety Checkpoint is to detect and remove drivers who are operating under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs from the roads. The Checkpoint also raises the public’s awareness of law enforcement’s efforts to combat this serious issue.
“Any inconvenience to motorists will be minimized with advanced notice to reduce fear and anxiety,” said Colonel Christopher Mason, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, in the announcement. “The selection of vehicles will not be arbitrary. Safety will be assured.”
The Sobriety Checkpoint is funded through a grant provided by the Highway Safety Division of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security.
