Indiana State Police said the agency will conduct sobriety checkpoints Wednesday in Newton and Jasper counties.

State police Sgt. Tony Slocum said drivers who encounter the checkpoints will be be required to produce a valid license and registration. If the trooper determine they are sober, they will only experience a delay of less than three minutes.

Slocum said troopers also will conduct roving "saturation" patrols Wednesday in both counties in search of impaired drivers. The agency asks the public to call 911 or contact the closest state police post to report the description of any vehicle whose motorist appears to be impaired.
