Sobriety Checkpoints Planned in LaPorte County


To combat impaired driving, the LaPorte County DUI Task Force will be setting up sobriety checkpoints in the evening hours of Friday, Aug. 29.

These checkpoints will be conducted as part of the statewide Operation Pullover Blitz #80.

The location of these checkpoints are based upon the analysis of available accident data, impaired driving arrest data and officer safety. When you arrive at a checkpoint, you will be required to show the officer your driver’s license and vehicle registration. DUI Task Force members will evaluate drivers for signs of alcohol or drug impairment. If you do not exhibit signs of impairment or there is no other need to detain you further, your approximate delay will be two minutes or less.

The LaPorte County DUI Task Force is a grant project that is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and is administered and monitored by the Indiana’s Governor’s Council on Impaired and Dangerous Driving.
