Memorial day weekend is here which means a long weekend for most folks.  everyone is getting ready to hit the road for a road trip or planning to attend concerts and events in the area. 

With that being said, all the law enforcement agencies in the area will be stepping up patrols looking for impaired drivers and people who are not wearing their seatlbelts.  

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's office (CPSO) will be one of those agencies as the participate in the 'Click it or Ticket' campaign.  The CPSO will be conducting a seatbelt checkpoint this Saturday May 27th somewhere in the parish.  

They will also be looking for impaired drivers under the influence of narcotics or alcohol.  So if you are headed out this weekend, please buckle up and designate a driver.
