The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office will be hitting the roads on Friday June 29th to conduct a DWI checkpoint.
The checkpoint will be executed at an undisclosed location in the Parish.  It will target drivers who are operating a motor vehicle in an impaired state under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics.
These checkpoints have proven to be effective in discouraging residents from driving while intoxicated and they are more likely to have a designated driver when they know sobriety checkpoints are being conducted.
This checkpoint is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
