Bremen Post State Police to Conduct Sobriety Checkpoint in Elkhart County

by Indiana State Police on August 19, 2014

Elkhart County – Indiana State Police Sergeant Bruce Duhaime has announced a sobriety checkpoint that will be held in Elkhart County by Bremen Post Troopers. The checkpoint will start during the evening hours of Friday August 22, 2014. 

Motorists are asked to have their driver’s license and vehicle registrations available when entering the checkpoint. This will help minimize the amount of time spent at the checkpoint. Motorists can expect short delays of only two to three minutes. 

The Bremen Post serves St. Joseph, Elkhart, Marshall, and Kosciusko Counties. After the checkpoint troopers will conduct saturation patrols looking for impaired drivers. Sergeant Duhaime reminds the motoring public that checkpoints are also used to educate everyone of the ongoing efforts of the Indiana State Police. The goal is ultimately to reduce the number of impaired driving crashes and deter people from driving while intoxicated. 


• Plan ahead and always choose someone to be the designated driver. 
• Don’t get behind the wheel of a vehicle if you’ve been consuming alcoholic beverages. 
• If you are impaired, please call a taxi or call a sober friend or family member to come and get you. 
• If you are hosting a party, always offer alcohol-free beverages, and make sure that all of your guests leave with a sober driver. 
• Remember, Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk. Take the keys and never let a friend leave your sight if you think that they are about to drive while impaired.
