[ISP] Sobriety Checkpoint Scheduled for Henry County
Start Date: 3/9/2012
End Date: 3/9/2012
Entry Description

Lieutenant Bob Burke, Commander of the Pendleton State Police Post, has announced there will be a sobriety checkpoint held somewhere in Henry County, in the Pendleton District, during the evening hours of Friday, March 9th, 2012.  This checkpoint is in conjunction with the Operation Pull Over Blitz #70 “Drunk Driving – Over the Limit – Under Arrest” March crackdown on impaired and dangerous drivers. 

Motorists are asked to have their driver’s license and vehicle registrations readily available when entering the checkpoint, so as to minimize the amount of time that they are delayed. Motorists can expect short delays of only two to three minutes during the checkpoint. 

The Pendleton State Police Post serves Delaware, Madison, Randolph, Henry, Wayne, Fayette, Union, and Rush Counties. Before and after the checkpoint troopers will be holding saturation patrols looking for impaired drivers

A FEW PRECAUTIONS:

• 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.
• 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.

In March 2010, there were 50 highway fatalities on Indiana roadways.  A legally intoxicated driver was involved in 28% of those highway fatalities. The Indiana State Police is committed to reducing the number of impaired driving crashes as well as all crashes. We continue to monitor the top causes for crashes, and concentrating enforcement efforts on these causes.
