The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a DWI/seatbelt checkpoint at an undisclosed location within the parish on Thursday, January 28.

"This checkpoint will target individuals driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics, which has been 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. The checkpoint will also target people who are not wearing their seatbelt," said CPSO.

Seat belts save lives, so buckle up, and don’t drink and drive.
