The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is having a seat belt checkpoint somewhere in the parish.  The reason they do this is to save lives.  So make sure that you wear your seat belt not just Thursday but everyday.

On Thursday, June 16, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a seat belt checkpoint at an undisclosed location in the parish.

“Conducting these checkpoints is a vital part in an overall effort to ensure the safety of our citizens,” says Sheriff Tony Mancuso. “It has been proven that wearing a seat belt can save a life.”

“Also remember there is a law in Louisiana that mandates all passengers in a vehicle to be buckled up, even those in the back seat,” says Sheriff Mancuso.

These checkpoints are funded by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
