Louisiana State Police will be cracking down on drunk drivers and seatbelt violators in DeSoto Parish this weekend.
Troop G plans to conduct a DWI/Seatbelt checkpoint Saturday, Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. until 3 a.m. at an undisclosed location.
Troopers will be looking out for impaired drivers and people who are not wearing their seatbelts.
In 2016, 52% of the fatal crashes in Troop G involved impaired drivers and nearly 60% involved people that were improperly restrained or not restrained at all.
State Police are encouraging you to designate a sober driver and buckle up.
To report impaired drivers dial *577 from your cell phone or contact your local law enforcement agency.
Support for this checkpoint is provided by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
