It's Summer time and people are getting together all over Southwest Louisiana to have their backyard BBQ's and swimming parties.  With that being said, people are also have a few adult beverages to go along with the fun.  Well remember to alway designate a driver!

This weekend, The Louisiana State Police will conduct a DWI and seatbelt checkpoint this Friday night June 12th and the checkpoint will be somewhere in Calcasieu Parish.

Sgt. James Anderson advises drivers to remember to buckle up and designate a driver. He also went on to say that "Our mission will be to ticket vehicle occupants who are not properly restrained or who choose not to properly restrain children in the vehicle as well as to remove impaired drivers from the road before they cause injury or death to themselves or others."

So be smart Southwest Louisiana, designate a driver!
