CPSO Conducting DWI Checkpoint Tonight Aug 31
In an effort to keep our streets safe the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a DWI checkpoint somewhere in the parish tonight.
Labor day weekend is upon us and with a lot of you off for the next three days, folks will be going out to celebrate the holiday.
Please make sure you have a plan in place for getting home from your destination if you will be choosing to drink.
Kim Myers with the CPSO said,
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.
So designate a driver, call a taxi or even a Uber or LFYT to get you home safely.
