Crackdown on drunk driving

Friday, August 17, 2012

Indiana State Police Troopers at the Putnamville District joined more than 250 other Indiana law enforcement agencies across the state in the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over," crackdown on impaired and dangerous drivers Friday.

The crackdown will last through Monday, Sept. 3.

Through Labor Day, troopers will work overtime to conduct high-visibility enforcement activities designed to identify impaired drivers. Motorists will also see an increased number of patrols looking for aggressive drivers and unrestrained motorists during the time period.

"Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over," is a statewide enforcement effort supported by federal funding allocated to the Indiana State Police from the Traffic Safety division of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.

Troopers within the Putnamville District will also patrol the construction zones along Interstate-70 from the Indiana/Illinois state line to the 58-mile marker due to work zones, which have produced several accidents in recent weeks.

The Putnamville District covers Parke, Putnam, Vermillion, Vigo, Clay and Sullivan counties.
