Versailles, In. — Indiana State Police have announced plans for a sobriety check point in Jackson County at an undisclosed location November 17-18. Officials say the purpose of check points is to find and remove possibly impaired drivers.
State police provide the following advice:
- Plan ahead and always use a designated driver.
- Don’t get behind the wheel of a vehicle if you’ve been consuming alcoholic beverages; call a taxi, a family member, or friend who has not been drinking to give you a ride.
- If you are hosting a party, always offer alcohol-free beverages and make sure all of your guests leave with a sober driver or allow them to spend the night.
- Remember, Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk. Take the keys and never let a friend leave your sight if you think that they are about to drive while impaired.
