Sobriety checkpoints will be taking place this weekend in Vanderburgh County.

According to a press release issued by the Indiana State Police, motorists can expect to see at least one sobriety checkpoint this weekend. It is advised that while authorities cannot post the exact time and location of the checkpoint, sober drivers should be aware that a stop for a Breathalyzer could take up to 3 minutes.

Of course, anyone testing over the legal limit (.08%) will be taken directly to jail.

Indiana State Police ask that motorists dial 911 if they witness what appears to be an impaired driver on the roadways. Officers ask that you be able to give a description of the vehicle, its location and the direction in which it is headed.

In other words, if you plan on drinking this weekend in the Evansville area, please have designated driver or the common sense to call a cab.
