Sobriety Checkpoint Friday In Dubois County

checkpoint3DUBOIS COUNTY (From Releases) – Troopers from the Indiana State Police Post will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint Friday at an undisclosed location in Dubois County. Drivers passing through the checkpoint area should have their licenses and registrations ready to present to troopers and will only be detained briefly while troopers determine whether further investigation is necessary.

The purpose of the checkpoint is to remove motorists who are alcohol and/or drug impaired and posing a danger to others from the highways. Impaired drivers are responsible for billions of dollars in property damage, personal injury, and death annually.

Reminders so motorists do not find themselves Over the Limit and Under Arrest:
• Plan ahead and always designate a sober driver before consuming alcohol.
• Don’t drive your vehicle if you’ve been drinking alcohol. Call a taxi or sober friend.
• Take care of your friends. Never let a friend drive while impaired.
• If you are hosting a party, always offer non-alcoholic beverages. Make sure all of your guests leave with a sober driver.
• Never provide alcohol to anyone under the legal drinking age of 21.

Motorists encountering another vehicle being operated erratically are encouraged to dial 911 or call the Indiana State Police Post at 812 482-1441 or 800-742-7475 (free call). Be prepared to give a description of the vehicle, location, and direction of travel.
