Sobriety checkpoints set for Bremen, German Township on Saturday night


Area police agencies are teaming up to fight drunk driving.

From now through Labor Day, about 230 law enforcement agencies across Indiana, and thousands nationwide, are participating in the annual Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over effort.

Police say you should expect increased sobriety checkpoints, roving patrols and saturation patrols.

Anybody who sees someone showing the signs of impaired driving, which include weaving and swerving, driving at a very slow speed and stopping or turning abruptly, should get away from the vehicle and call police.

During the event, expect to see increased high-visibility enforcement zones throughout Elkhart County and most other counties, as well as saturation patrols and other methods designed to detect and incarcerate impaired drivers.

Sobriety checkpoints planned for Saturday night, Aug. 11, in Bremen and German Township.
