ELKHART — Indiana State Police officers will be on the lookout for drunk drivers Friday night, Nov. 22.

Officers will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint in Elkhart County on Friday, Sgt. Bruce Duhaime announced on Tuesday, Nov. 19.

Drivers who pass through the checkpoint should have their driver’s license and vehicle registration ready to help shorten the amount of time spent at a checkpoint. Delays should only last two to three minutes.

“The state police have zero tolerance for impaired drivers,” Duhaime said. “If you are over the limit, you will be arrested.”

The Indiana State Police would also like to remind anyone planning on drinking alcohol on Friday night to plan ahead with a designated driver or call a taxi or sober friend if you have been drinking. Party hosts should offer alcohol-free beverages and make sure guests leave the party with a sober driver.
