The message is really simple. Don't drink and drive! Unfortunately the message does not always sink in. The CPSO sends us notice of check points in an effort to curb this dangerous activity.

Accoding to a press release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office ... in a continuing effort to keep the citizens of Calcasieu Parish safe, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a DWI checkpoint at an undisclosed location in the parish on Friday, November 9.

This checkpoint will target individuals driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics.  They have 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.

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