Heads-up there will be more DWI checkpoints in the area this Friday.  As part of the national crackdown on drunk driving, and due to the upcoming Labor Day holiday the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office (CPSO) will be out in full force.

The CPSO will be participating in the ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’campaign this Friday September 4.  Several units will be posted up, at a variety of undisclosed locations in the area conducting DWI sobriety tests. Rule of thumb, don't drink and drive or if your headed out on the town, have a designated driver.  
These checkpoints have proven to be pretty effective and will specifically target individuals driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics.  This checkpoint is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
