From the CPSO:
On Friday, January 27, 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.
