Indiana State Police troopers will be on the lookout for impaired drivers on Friday.

Troopers will be working with law enforcement in Kosciusko and Miami Counties and will set up sobriety checkpoints in undisclosed locations that evening. Drivers that encounter the checkpoints are asked to have their driver’s licenses and registrations available for troopers.

The purpose of sobriety checkpoints is to remove drivers that are under the influence of drugs or alcohol and pose a risk to others on the roadways. Impaired drivers cause billions of dollars in property damage, personal injury, and death annually.

If you see a possibly impaired driver, call 911 and be prepared to give a location, direction of travel, and vehicle description.
