Louisiana State Police are continuing their efforts to keep drunk drivers off the road and to make sure people buckle up. 

Troop G will conduct a multi-agency sobriety and seat belt checkpoint from 11 p.m. until 2 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 10 at an undisclosed location in Caddo Parish. 

Troopers will be on the lookout for impaired drivers.  They will also be checking for people who are not wearing their seat belts.

In 2017, 60% of the fatal crashes investigated by Troop G involved impairment and 64% involved motorists that were improperly restrained or not restrained at all.  

To report impaired drivers dial *577 from your cell phone to reach the nearest LSP troop location or dial 911.

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