This week the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office is continuing their efforts to keep citizens safe, by conducting another DWI/Seatbelt checkpoint at an undisclosed location in the parish on Friday, August 15th.

This checkpoint 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. — CPSO

As we told you on last week, don’t drink and drive, and buckle up that seatbelt. No matter how you feel about it, it is without a doubt the law. Be safe folks!
