LAKE CHARLES, La.- The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office will be conducting a DWI checkpoint at an undisclosed location in the parish on Saturday, February 2.
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.
Louisiana State Police and Lake Charles Police Department will be participating in this checkpoint. It is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
