November 21, 2012 Updated Nov 21, 2012 at 12:05 PM EST

Noble County, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - The Indiana State Police will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint in Noble County during the early morning hours of Saturday, November 24th. In an effort to reduce the number of alcohol-related automobile crashes, the sobriety checkpoint will target the impaired driver and will be utilized in an area identified as having a high number of alcohol related crashes.

Motorists are reminded to have their driver’s license and vehicle registrations readily available when entering the checkpoint, so as to minimize the amount of time that they are delayed. Weber also offers the following tips:

• Plan ahead and always designate someone as a 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.
