DWI checkpoint planned in St. Landry Parish
ST. LANDRY PARISH, LA — The Louisiana State Police will conduct a sobriety checkpoint tonight from 9:00 p.m. until 3:00 a.m. in St. Landry Parish.
Troopers will be looking for impaired drivers as well as aggressive drivers and unrestrained occupants.
Troopers have a zero tolerance for impaired persons found to be operating a motor vehicle. Troopers remind drivers that impairment is not only caused by alcohol. If a driver is found to be under the influence of certain narcotic medications or illegal substances they too can be arrested for DWI. If you plan to drink make sure you designate a driver.
If you see an aggressive or impaired driver you can report them by calling *LSP (*577) or your local law enforcement agency.
