Police and transportation officials are encouraging partiers to remain sober if driving, use a designated driver or take public transportation. Massachusetts State Police say troopers will be on the lookout for impaired and dangerous drivers.
The 18 MassDOT service plazas will also be helping drivers stay alert by handing out free coffee from 10 p.m. on Sunday through 5 a.m. on Monday.
