In an effort to combat impaired driving, Louisiana State Police Troop D plans to conduct a DWI checkpoint on Saturday, April 27, 2013, from approximately 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. at an undisclosed location in Calcasieu Parish.
Their mission will be to find and remove impaired drivers from the road before they can cause injury or death to themselves or others.
Motorists are asked to remember to designate a sober driver before traveling to any place where alcohol will be consumed.
To report impaired drivers, motorists are encouraged to dial *LSP (*577) from their cellular phone or to contact their local law enforcement agency.
Support for this checkpoint is provided by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
