(MONROE CO.) - Troopers from the Indiana State Police Bloomington Post along with Deputies from the Monroe County Sheriff's Department will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location in Monroe County on Friday.

Drivers passing through the checkpoint area should have their licenses and registrations available and will only wait briefly while troopers determine whether further investigation is necessary.

Hoosiers are asked to help do their part in making Indiana roadways safer by observing the following tips:


  • Plan ahead and always use a designated driver.

  • Don't get behind the wheel of a vehicle if you've been consuming alcoholic beverages. Instead, call a taxi, a family member or friend who has not been drinking to give you a ride.

  • If you are hosting a party, always offer non-alcoholic beverages and make sure all of your guests leave with a sober driver or allow them to spend the night.

  • Remember, Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk! Take the keys and never let a friend leave your sight if you think that they are about to drive while impaired.

Anyone observing erratic driving should call 911 immediately and be prepared to give a detailed description of the vehicle, its location and direction of travel. Callers can remain anonymous.

The Indiana State Police and the Monroe County Sheriff's Department are committed to traffic safety and will continue to conduct saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints to apprehend impaired drivers and to deter others from drinking and driving.
