Sheriffs Office to Conduct DWI/Seatbelt Checkpoint This Weekend
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office will be conducting a DWI/Seat Belt checkpoint somewhere in the parish this weekend.
Here is press release from the 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.
