Troopers from the Bremen Post will be conducting high visibility enforcement efforts including sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols looking for impaired drivers and unrestrained motorists.

Motorists are asked to have their driver’s license and vehicle registration available when entering a checkpoint.  This will help minimize the amount of time spent at the checkpoint.  Motorists can expect short delays of only two to three minutes.
