HAMMOND | Hammond police will conduct a sobriety checkpoint this weekend in conjunction with the Lake County Drunk Driving Task Force.

Motorists stopped at the checkpoint should be delayed only long enough to produce their driver's license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance, said Lt. Patrick Vicari, Hammond Police Traffic Division commander.

Drivers who show no signs of impairment and have no other issues can expect only minimal inconvenience at the checkpoint, Vicari said.

Police stopped 158 vehicles through a sobriety checkpoint last weekend, Vicari said, arresting two drivers for suspected impaired driving and three others for driving on a suspended license. Police issued 154 citations.
