KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT)- Troopers with the Indiana State Police Bremen Post will partner with local law enforcement in Kosciusko County to conduct a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location in Kosciusko County.

The checkpoint will take place Friday night  from 10 p.m. until midnight.

The checkpoint is part of the Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over campaign that has been in effect since Aug. 5 and ends on Sept. 2.

Drivers that encounter this checkpoint are asked to have their driver’s licenses and registrations available for troopers.

Police say time spent at the checkpoint will be minimal.

The purpose of sobriety checkpoints is to remove drivers that are under the influence of drugs or alcohol and pose a risk to others on the roadways.

Impaired drivers cause billions of dollars in property damage, personal injury, and death annually, according to police.


Troopers ask the public to observe the following tips:
• Use a designated driver
• Don’t get behind the wheel if you have been drinking. Call a taxi, friend, or family member that has not been drinking.
• If you are hosting a party, offer non-alcoholic drinks as an option
• Don’t let friends drive drunk. Offer to get them a ride or spend the night.


If you see a possibly impaired driver, call 911 and be prepared to give a location, direction of travel, and vehicle description.
