With a holiday weekend soon approaching, state police have announced they will conduct drunk driving spot checks along Route 2 in North Stonington on Dec. 21.

The purpose of the checks, according to state police, is to ensure the highest possible degree of safety for those driving during the holiday weekend.

Troopers will focus on finding intoxicated drivers but also will keep an eye out for speeders, distracted drivers and those who aren't wearing seat belts, as well as drivers violating other motor vehicle and driving laws. Police said such unsafe driving behaviors needlessly claim lives in Connecticut every year.
