It's that time of the year again...the time when we all begin celebrating.  It's March Madness time, St. Patrick's Day is coming up, Mardi Gras is just around the corner and there are other festivities that typically pop up where drinking is part of the celebrating.  This equates to more impaired drivers on the road.  As a result, beginning today, the Indiana State Police, Vanderburgh Sheriff's Department, Evansville Police Department and other law enforcement agencies are stepping up the patrols.

There will be at least one sobriety checkpoint conducted by the Indiana State Police, along with saturation patrols, so drive carefully and celebrate, but do it sober!
