In an effort to make sure everyone gets home safe after celebrating the end of another work week, the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office announces they'll be conducting a sobriety checkpoint somewhere in Vanderburgh County Friday night.

By design, the exact location of the checkpoint will not be revealed in advance. I imagine it's hard to catch drunk drivers if they avoid the area. However, they did reveal the checkpoint will be located in an area "for a disproportionately high number of reported hit and run crashes," and will operate from at 11:00 p.m. Friday night through 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

Law enforcement officials encourage drivers to call 911 anytime they see a driver they believe to be impaired.

Of course, if you intend on having a few drinks after work or at any point Friday night (or any night for that matter), have a plan to get home before you start. Assign a designated driver, use Uber or Lyft, or call a cab.
