The Miami County Sheriff's Office increases impaired, dangerous driving patrols for March Madness and St. Patrick's Day The Miami County Sheriff's Office is joining law-enforcement agencies across Indiana this March to increase dangerous and impaired driving patrols for the NCAA Tournament and St. Patrick's Day. Last year, the weekend beginning St. Patrick's Day had the highest number crashes involving impaired drivers. With March 17, 2018 falling on a Saturday, police are conducting random patrols, saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints intended to make our roads safer. "If you're watching March Madness or celebrating St. Patrick's Day from a bar or pub, draft a sober driver, cab or ridesharing service to get home safely," said Sheriff Tim Miller. "Our officers are trained to spot - and there will be zero tolerance for - impaired and dangerous drivers." The top causes of all Indiana traffic crashes are drivers following too closely and failing to yield to the right of way. Aggressive, distracted and impaired driving reduce reaction times to unexpected slowed traffic, bicycles and pedestrians.

Travel Status Level for Miami County lowered to WHITE (Normal).

TRAVEL STATUS ELEVATED TO YELLOW Miami County Sheriff Tim Miller advises that the Miami County Commissioners have elevated the travel status level to YELLOW (Advisory) due to all roadways in Miami County being ice covered, slick and hazardous. Yellow, the lowest level of local travel advisory, means that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation, and individuals should use caution or avoid those areas. Motorists should slow their speed and allow plenty of time to reach their destination. Be alert. Be safe.

ICY ROAD CONDITIONS Miami County Sheriff Tim Miller reports extremely slick and hazardous roadways in Miami County, due to icy conditions. Please slow your speed, allow extra distance for braking, and extended time to reach your destination. Drive safely.

TRAVEL STATUS LEVEL REDUCTED TO WHITE (NORMAL). Miami County Commissioners have reduced the Travel Status Level to White (Normal). Motorists should keep an eye out for any remaining patches of ice, on the roadway, as safe travel resumes.
