PERRY COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT) – Indiana State Police will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint in Perry County next Friday, August 23.

The exact location and time will not be released, ISP said in a press release.

Troopers encourage motorists to call 911 when they see another motorist that may be impaired.

If you’re entering the checkpoint, you’re encouraged to have your driver’s license and vehicle registration readily available:
• Plan ahead and always have a designated driver.
• Don’t get behind the wheel of a vehicle if you’ve been consuming alcoholic beverages.
• Better safe than sorry: call a taxi, sober friend or a family member to come and get you.
• If you are hosting a party, always offer alcohol-free beverages, and make sure all of your guests leave with a sober driver.
