For a lot of people ... a day off means celebrating with great food and a drink or two. There is nothing wrong with that as long as you don't drive after the drinks. The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Department is doing their part to keep our roads safe this holiday weekend with DWI checkpoints.


According to a release  the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting two DWI checkpoints and seatbelt checkpoints at an undisclosed location in the parish on Friday, May 23, and Tuesday, May 27. My guess would be the ones on Tuesday will be very early in the morning or late Monday night ... depending on how you look at it. Please designate a driver if you are planning on drinking this weekend.
