Entry Description

Indiana State Police to Conduct Sobriety Checkpoint

Tippecanoe County-The Lafayette District of the Indiana State Police will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint during the late evening hours in Tippecanoe County on Friday, March 21, 2014. This checkpoint is in conjunction with the Operation Pull Over Blitz #78, Saint Patrick’s Day Aggressive Driving & DUI that began February 28th and runs through March 23rd.

Drivers that encounter a check point will be required to produce a valid license and registration. Motorists that are not impaired can expect only short delays of 2-3 minutes while passing through the checkpoint. If all information is correct and there is no other reason to be detained, they will be released. After the check point, troopers will conduct roving saturation patrols, aggressively seeking impaired drivers throughout the district.

Law Enforcement encourages all motorists to call 911, or the closest Indiana State Police Post, or police department 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 select check point times and locations based upon statistical data derived from Indiana State Police DUI arrest records and crash records. The public is asked to help do their part in making Indiana roadways safer by observing the following tips:

• Plan ahead and always use a designated driver.
• Don’t get behind the wheel of a vehicle if you've been consuming alcoholic beverages; instead call a taxi, a family member, or friend who has not been drinking to give you a ride.
• If you are hosting a party, always offer non-alcoholic beverages and make sure all of your guests leave with a sober driver or allow them to spend the night.
• 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.

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.
