Sobriety checkpoint set for Friday in Dubois County

From Local Sources

Indiana State Police will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint this Friday night and early Saturday morning in Dubois County.

The exact location and time will not be released. Police are mandated by law to announce checkpoints in advance after a United State Supreme Court ruling that they are constitutionally permissible.

Motorists that are not impaired can expect only short delays of 2-3 minutes while passing through the checkpoint.

Troopers encourage all motorists to call 911 or the closest Indiana State Police Post when they observe another motorist that may be impaired. Be prepared to give a description of the vehicle, location and direction of travel.

The Indiana State Police are committed to traffic safety and will continue to conduct saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints to apprehend impaired drivers and to deter others from drinking and driving.
