Hampden County Sobriety Checkpoint
Your Massachusetts Motorcycle Association would like to alert our riders of an upcoming checkpoint from the Massachusetts State Police in Hampden County, scheduled for March 12-13, 2021.

It's important to note that the MSP is correctly following their documented protocol for announcing the checkpoints in advance, and this checkpoint is NOT aimed directly at Motorcycles and Motorcyclists. Your MMA is always on the alert for any situation that potentially profiles motorcyclists - if you run into any situation where you feel targeted simply because you were riding a motorcycle or because of your attire, please contact chairman@massmotorcycle.org.

Please take note of the times and location; and as always, ride safely!
