(MARTIN COUNTY) - Troopers from the Indiana State Police Jasper Post will be conducting a sobriety check point at an undisclosed location in Martin County on Friday.

Those drivers passing through the check point area should have their licenses and registrations ready to present to troopers and will only be detained briefly while troopers determine whether further investigation is necessary.

The purpose of the sobriety check point is to remove those motorists from the highways who are alcohol and/or drug impaired and poses a danger to all who use the roadways.

Impaired drivers are responsible for billions of dollars in property damage, personal injury, and death annually.

Motorists encountering another vehicle being operated erratically are encouraged to dial 911 or call the Jasper Indiana State Police Post at (812) 482-1441 or (800) 742-7475 and be prepared to give a description of the vehicle, location, and direction of travel.
