They will also be checking vehicles for unrestrained motorists and occupants in an effort to reduce the number of traffic related fatalities caused by not wearing a seat belt.

The checkpoint is this Friday night from 8pm to 2am and will be at an undisclosed location in Calcasieu Parish.

Make sure to not drink and drive or have a designated driver on hand.
