Vanderburgh County Sheriffs To Conduct DUI Checkpoint Friday Night
In an effort to make sure everyone gets home safe after celebrating the end of another work week, the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office announces they'll be conducting a sobriety checkpoint somewhere in Vanderburgh County Friday night.
By design, the exact location of the checkpoint will not be revealed in advance. I imagine it's hard to catch drunk drivers if they avoid the area. However, they did reveal the checkpoint will be located in an area "for a disproportionately high number of reported hit and run crashes," and will operate from at 11:00 p.m. Friday night through 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
Law enforcement officials encourage drivers to call 911 anytime they see a driver they believe to be impaired.
Of course, if you intend on having a few drinks after work or at any point Friday night (or any night for that matter), have a plan to get home before you start. Assign a designated driver, use Uber or Lyft, or call a cab.
