DWI Checkpoint planned in Bossier Parish

lsp

 In an effort to combat impaired driving in our area, Louisiana State Police Troop G plans to conduct a DWI checkpoint on Friday, March 15, 2013, from approximately 11:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. at an undisclosed location in Bossier Parish.  Our mission will be to find and remove impaired drivers from the road before they can cause injury or death to themselves or others.

Last year, Troop G investigated 27 fatal crashes. Of those 27 crashes, 6 (22%) involved impaired drivers (alcohol and/or drugs).  Motorists are asked to remember to designate a sober driver before traveling to any place where alcohol will be consumed.  Drive sober or get pulled over.

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.
