Entry Description

Dubois County: On Saturday, January 18, the Jasper District of the Indiana State Police coordinated an effort to look for impaired drivers throughout Dubois County. Troopers, along with deputies from the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department and officers from the Jasper, Huntingburg, and Ferdinand Police Departments, spent the night looking for intoxicated motorists traveling on local roadways.

Through their efforts during the saturation patrol, officers arrested two motorists for Operating While Intoxicated and three other individuals for different crimes. Fifteen traffic citations and 66 warnings were also issued to motorists for various traffic offenses.

Reminders so motorists do not find themselves in a drunk driving situation:

• Plan ahead and always designate a sober driver before consuming alcohol.
• Don’t drive your vehicle if you’ve been drinking alcohol. Call a taxi or sober friend.
• Take care of your friends. Never let a friend drive while impaired.
• If you are hosting a party, always offer non-alcoholic beverages. Make sure all of your guests leave with a sober driver.
• Never provide alcohol to anyone under the legal drinking age of 21.

Motorists encountering another vehicle being operated erratically are encouraged to dial 911 or call the Jasper Indiana State Police Post at (812) 482-1441 or (800) 742-7475. Be prepared to give a description of the vehicle, location, and direction of travel.
