Louisiana State Police will be on the lookout for those who drink and drive in Bossier Parish this weekend.

Troop G plans to conduct a DWI/Seatbelt checkpoint on Friday, Sept. 8 from 11 p.m. until 1 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 9 at an undisclosed location.

Troopers will try to find and remove impaired drivers from the road.  They will also be checking vehicles for
unrestrained drivers and passengers.

In 2016, 52% of the fatal crashes in Troop G involved impaired drivers and nearly 60% of the people involved were improperly restrained or not restrained at all. 

LSP encourages you to designate a sober driver and buckle up. 

To report impaired drivers, motorists are encouraged to dial *577 from your cell phone or to contact their local law enforcement agency.

Support for this checkpoint is provided by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
