    Ipswich -
    The Massachusetts State Police will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on a secondary state highway in Essex County, Saturday, Dec. 12, into Sunday, Dec. 13. The purpose is to further educate drivers and strengthen the publicís awareness to the need of detecting and removing drivers who operate under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs from our roadways.
    The police will conduct the checkpoint during varied hours, the selection of vehicles will not be arbitrary, safety will be assured and any inconveniences to drivers will be minimized with advance notice to reduce fear and anxiety.

    if they can't find impaired drivers on the road in normal traffic maybe drivers are not impaired enough to not be able to operate a MV.

    these checkpoints are setup to catch drivers who are perfectly capable of operating a MV but happen to be over the governments imposed limits. since DUI's are such money makers these are more revenue generators then "safety checks"

    The problem is that they usually write 100 tickets for expired registration for every suspected drunk they encounter. Still all about the revenue.
