The Lowell District of the Indiana State Police has announced plans to conduct a sobriety checkpoint during the late evening hours in Jasper County on Wednesday, May 23. Drivers who encounter the checkpoint will be required to produce a valid license and registration, and if all information is correct and officers find no reason for detainment, they will be released. Motorists that are not impaired can expect short delays of two to three minutes while passing through the checkpoint.
Troopers encourage all motorists to call 911 or the closest Indiana State Police Post when they observe a driver that they feel maybe be impaired. Be prepared to give a description of the vehicle, location, and direction of travel.
The Indiana State Police is committed to traffic safety and they have announced they will continue saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints in an effort to apprehend impaired drivers and deter others from drinking and driving.
