State police to hold sobriety checkpoint in Decatur County

Indiana State Police say that they will be holding a sobriety checkpoint at an undisclosed location in Decatur County on March 13th and 14th.

Troopers say that the purpose of sobriety checkpoints is to remove those motorists from the highways who are alcohol or drug impaired. If you come across the checkpoint, you should have your license and registration ready to present to troopers. State police say you will only be detained briefly while troopers determine whether further investigation is necessary.

If you see a vehicle exhibiting erratic driving behavior, call 911 and give a complete description of the vehicle, its location, and direction of travel.  These reports can be made anonymously.
