The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is currently participating in the Buckle Up In Your Truck campaign, and this weekend they will have a seatbelt checkpoint to enforce it.

The checkpoint is done in an effort to look for drivers and passengers who are not wearing their seatbelts. Remember, the Louisiana law states that all passengers in a vehicle are to be buckled up, even those in the back seat.

Also on top of officers looking for folks not wearing their seatbelts, they will also be looking for those drivers who are driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics.

The checkpoint will be conducted this Saturday, April 27th, 2019 at an undisclosed location in Calcasieu parish.

So be careful, designate a driver, get a Uber or Lyft, and buckle up.
