Indiana authorities have launched a crackdown on impaired driving over the holiday season, with a focus on apprehending drivers under the influence of alcohol. This initiative is part of the state’s larger efforts to reduce the number of fatalities resulting from driving while intoxicated (DWI) on Indiana roadways.
The Indiana State Police (ISP) has deployed extra patrols in an effort to deter drivers from operating their vehicles while impaired. According to ISP, the department will be utilizing a variety of advanced techniques to identify drivers exhibiting signs of DWI, such as sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols.
The ISP is also encouraging motorists to participate in their campaign by reporting any suspicious activity they observe to authorities. Drivers are urged to call 911 if they witness another vehicle being operated erratically or if they encounter a driver that appears to be intoxicated.
In addition to the heightened enforcement, ISP is also reminding drivers of the potential consequences of DWI. The department has stated that those convicted of DWI face a multitude of consequences, including, but not limited to, license revocation, fines, and jail time.
It is the hope of ISP that this warning and the increased enforcement will serve as a deterrent for drivers who choose to operate their vehicles while impaired. Indiana authorities are committed to making the roadways safer for all.
