People who drink and drive put themselves and others at grave risk. The problem is that drinking clouds your judgement ... so decisions like whether or not they should drive ... become clouded. The best practice is to designate a driver before you start drinking. Area law enforcement agencies are working hard to remove and prevent impaired drivers on our roads.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a combination DWI checkpoint and a seat belt checkpoint at an undisclosed location in the parish on Friday, May 24.  These checkpoints have proven to be a big deterrent  to impaired driving. Please post this to your facebook and help us get the word out. The more we get the word out .... the less likely we are to encounter impaired drivers. Thanks for your help.

            This checkpoint is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
