Sobriety checkpoint in Parke County

Thursday, August 10, 2017

Parke County Troopers from the Indiana State Police Putnamville District will conduct a sobriety checkpoint sometime this coming weekend during the late evening hours in Parke County.

Drivers who encounter a check point will be required to produce a valid license and registration. Motorists who are not impaired can expect short delays of 2-3 minutes while passing through the checkpoint.

Remember to drive sober or use a designated driver and always buckle-up.

Should you encounter a driver exhibiting behaviors such as erratic braking, swerving, drifting, unusually wide turns, tailgating, rapid acceleration, driving left of center, or responds to traffic signals slow, and you suspect the driver to be impaired or fatigued, dial 911.

  • Why do they(police) give a heads up about road stops. Doesn't make sense to me.
