Evansville Law Enforcement Conducting Sobriety Checkpoint Tonight
The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office in cooperation with the Evansville Police Department and Indiana State Police will be looking for drivers that had one to many tonight during a sobriety checkpoint somewhere in Vanderburgh County.
For obvious reasons, the exact location of the checkpoint is not being revealed (it's hard to catch impaired drivers if they avoid the area). However, the Sheriff's Office has announced the checkpoint will begin at 11:00 p.m. and continue until 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
Law enforcement determined the location based on traffic collision data from the months of July and August, looking at areas with higher-than-average hit and run statistics.
The checkpoint is part of the state wide, "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign.
If you have plans to go out, and those plans include kicking back a few alcoholic drinks, plan ahead and pick a designated driver. And remember, both Uber and Lyft are now available in Evansville, so there's no reason to take a chance.
