The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is going to be conducting a DWI sobriety checkpoint somewhere in the parish this weekend. It is an ongoing effort to keep the highways and roadways safe.

Here is the information passed down to us from the Calcasieu parish Sheriff's Office.

In a continuing effort to keep the citizens of Calcasieu Parish safe, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a DWI checkpoint and a seatbelt checkpoint in the parish this weekend.  These checkpoints will target individuals driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics; as well as, people who are not wearing their seatbelt.  They have proven to be very effective in discouraging citizens from driving while impaired and people are more likely to designate a driver when they know sobriety checkpoints are being conducted.            This checkpoint is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.

So be careful, designate a driver and have a great weekend!
