(JACKSON CO.) - The Indiana State Police Versailles Post will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location in Jackson County on Friday and Saturday.

The purpose of sobriety checkpoints is to remove motorists from the highways who are alcohol or drug impaired and pose a danger to all who use the roadways. Impaired drivers are responsible for billions of dollars in property damage, personal injury, and death annually.

Drivers passing through the checkpoint area should have licenses and registrations ready and will only be detained briefly while troopers determine whether further investigation is necessary.

To help to ensure your weekend is safe and enjoyable, here are some tips to observe:

  • Use a designated driver
  • If you have consumed alcoholic beverages, call a taxi, family member, or friend who has not been drinking to give you a ride
  • Take the keys and never let a friend leave your sight if you think he or she is about to drive while impaired
