On December 30, 2009, Louisiana State Police - Troop I, will conduct a Sobriety Checkpoint within Iberia Parish. The checkpoint will take place from 9:00 pm to 3:00 am. Troopers will be actively looking for impaired drivers, as well as other violations.
During the New Year holiday, troopers recognize the fact that people are more likely to drive impaired. This checkpoint is an effort to reduce the number of impaired drivers on the road. Troopers have zero tolerance for those drivers who choose to drive impaired. If you are found to be impaired you will be arrested. If you plan on drinking make sure you designate a driver.
Remember, Alcohol or Narcotics, Impairment is Impairment!
