FRAMINGHAM — Massachusetts State Police have announced that a “Sobriety Checkpoint” will be implemented on a Public Way in the Bristol County.

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.

The checkpoint will take place on Saturday into Sunday.
