LA State Police sets sobriety checkpoint for Friday night

Posted: Updated:
WEBSTER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Louisiana State Police says it will conduct a sobriety checkpoint from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. on Friday in an effort to combat impaired driving in Webster Parish.

The mission is "to intercept and incarcerate impaired drivers before they can cause injury or death to themselves, their passengers, or members of the public," LSP says in information it released Tuesday.

"Drivers are less likely to drive impaired when they recognize the increased probability of law enforcement action.

"We are asking the public to make the mature decision and to designate a sober driver.  Remember, 'You drink, You drive, You lose!' "

To report aggressive/impaired driving, call *LSP (*577) from your cellular phone or your local law enforcement agency.
