Louisiana State Police are working to keep you safe by cracking down on drunk drivers.

Troop G plans to conduct a sobriety-seat belt checkpoint on Thursday, March 28 between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. at an undisclosed location in Caddo Parish. 

Troopers will be on the lookout for impaired drivers.  They will also be checking vehicles for people not wearing their seatbelts.

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 to contact your local law enforcement agency. 

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