Indiana State Police Bremen Post To Conduct Sobriety Checkpoint In St. Joseph County

August 29, 2018

sobriety-checkpoints6Troopers with the Indiana State Police Bremen Post will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location in St. Joseph County on the night of Friday August 31 as part of Operation Pull Over, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”  Drivers that encounter this checkpoint are asked to have their driver’s licenses and registrations available for troopers.  Time spent at the checkpoint will be minimal.

The purpose of sobriety checkpoints is to remove drivers that are under the influence of drugs or alcohol and pose a risk to others on the roadways.  Impaired drivers cause billions of dollars in property damage, personal injury, and death annually.

Please observe the following tips.

  •   Use a designated driver
  •   Don’t get behind the wheel if you have been drinking.  Call a taxi, ride sharing service,   friend, or family member that has not been drinking.
  •    If you are hosting a party, offer non-alcoholic drinks as an option
  •    Don’t let friends drive drunk.  Offer to get them a ride or spend the night.

If you see a possibly impaired driver, call 911 and be prepared to give a location, direction of travel, and vehicle description.
