Advisory

Indiana State Police Lafayette Post Will Conduct D.U.I. Checkpoint

On the late evening of March 8th, the Indiana State Police Lafayette Post will conduct an enforcement check point targeting impaired drivers in Clinton County. A saturation patrol will be occurring before and after the checkpoint.

Motorists are asked to have their driver’s license and vehicle registrations available when entering the checkpoint. This will help minimize the amount of time spent at the checkpoint. Motorists can expect short delays of only two to three minutes.

“The goal of the checkpoint is to decrease the number of alcohol related crashes in the area.” Sergeant Dave Murray explains. “This will help in decreasing the number of crashes in a high crash zone area.”

Reminders so motorists do not find themselves “Over the Limit and Under Arrest”:

• Plan ahead and always designate a sober driver before consuming alcohol.
• Don’t drive your vehicle if you’ve been drinking alcohol. Call a taxi or a sober friend. A cab ride is cheaper than a D.U.I. arrest.
• Take care of your friends. Never let a friend drive while impaired. Take their keys.
• If you are hosting a party, always offer non-alcoholic beverages. Make sure all of your guests leave with a sober driver.
• Never provide alcohol to anyone under the legal drinking age of 21.

Motorists are encouraged to report suspected impaired drivers by calling 911. Give a vehicle description and direction of travel. Never follow an impaired driver.
