Over the weekend Massachusetts State Police stepped up patrols of Route 24 and Interstate 195, arresting 15 and issuing 222 citations.
The patrols are part of a new initiative to step up police presence after several accidents in recent weeks.
Among the 15 arrests were 9 people charged with operative under the influence.
One drunk driver, who is currently in the hospital, was issued a summons to court for OUI charges after a crash with another car that also sent that driver to the hospital.
