Indiana State Police to conduct sobriety checkpoints

The Indiana State Police’s Bloomington Post will conduct sobriety checkpoints Friday and Saturday at an undisclosed location in Monroe County, according to a press release from state police. 

State police officers will be looking for drivers that are intoxicated. Drivers may also come across sobriety checkpoints that will require them to provide license and registration. Drivers who encounter this will have to wait while troopers determine whether further investigation is necessary.

The press release recommends that if one plans to consume alcoholic beverages, to plan ahead and use a designated driver or a taxi service. It is also suggested that sober individuals prevent intoxicated persons from driving.

Observers of erratic driving should call 911 and provide a detailed description of the vehicle, its location and the direction of travel. Observers may remain anonymous.
