If you're not sure that the town of Westwood, Massachusetts is one of the loveliest towns in New England, listen to this: In July 2005, CNN/Money and Money magazine ranked Westwood Number 13 on its list of the "100 Best Places to Live in the United States." Also, Boston Magazine once named Westwood's Gay Street as one of the "Best Streets" in the Boston area. Currently, Westwood is the 20th wealthiest town in Massachusetts.
Westwood is home to Xaverian Brothers High School, a Catholic prep school for boys.
Until 2005, Westwood was a dry town. Today, restaurants can apply for liquor licenses.
Westwood is home to the famous Hale Reservation, an area of open space donated by Robert Sever Hale. Hale Reservation spans more than 1,200 acres in Westwood and Dover, preserved and maintained as pristine conservation land by a private trust.
One of Westwood's most famous resident was the late trial lawyer Barry Reed, who was also an acclaimed author. In 1980, Reed wrote the bestselling courtroom drama The Verdict. Reed's book centered on a down-on-his-luck lawyer who tries a malpractice case against two prominent doctors; their negligence caused a pregnant woman to go into a coma. The Verdict has been translated into a dozen languages and was made into a 1982 film starring Paul Newman and James Mason. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor."Have You Been Arrested Or Are You Afraid You Might Be?

You could have a single alcoholic drink, drive your car, and get stopped by police because you forgot to use your turn, and a police officer could stop you. If the officer who stopped you detects alcohol on your breath, you will probably be arrested on OUI/DUI charges.
