Sobriety checkpoint planned for Bristol area
BRISTOL - State police and Bristol police will be checking for impaired drivers by setting up a sobriety checkpoint next week.
Police say the request to the court to approve the sobriety checkpoint came as a result of a high number of drinking and driving incident in the Lakes region, including a "consistent" number of deaths and personal injury accident.
The checkpoint will be scheduled at some point between June 26 and July 3.
A press conference also is planned in advance, on June 24, at 1 p.m. at the Bristol Police Department.
