State police to hold weekend sobriety checkpoint

ADAMS COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) State police will hold a sobriety checkpoint in Adams County Friday night into early Saturday, the local post said.

Indiana State Police troopers will conduct the checkpoint “during the late night hours on Friday, December 4th and into the early morning hours of Saturday, December 5th,” it said. The goal is to reduce the number of alcohol-related traffic crashes.

Police will target drunk drivers at “an area identified as having a high number of alcohol related crashes,” state police said.

Motorists who arrive at the checkpoint should have their driver’s license and vehicle registrations available to minimize the amount of time that they are delayed. Drivers should also:

  • Plan ahead and always designate someone as a designated driver.
  • Don’t get behind the wheel of a vehicle if you’ve been consuming alcoholic beverages.
  • If you are impaired, please call a taxi or call a sober friend or family member to come and get you.
  • If you are hosting a party, always offer alcohol-free beverages, and make sure that all of your guests leave with a sober driver.

The state police said drivers should remember, “Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk. Take the keys and never let a friend leave your sight if you think that they are about to drive while impaired.”
