State Police Plan Another Sobriety Checkpoint in Essex County This Weekend

For the third time this month, the Massachusetts State Police will hold a Sobriety Checkpoint in Essex County.

The checkpoint will be held Friday, April 25 into Saturday, April 26 on a public way within Essex County.

According to State Police, the purpose of the checkpoint 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.  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 selection of vehicles will not be arbitrary...' must mean all vehicles will be stopped (and their drivers 'educated').
