Deputies from the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office will conduct a DWI checkpoint this Saturday night (July 1, 2017) at an undisclosed location in St. Tammany Parish. The checkpoint is part of the ongoing, proactive “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign to combat impaired driving. The initiative is sponsored by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

Sheriff Randy Smith says, “We encourage everyone to make wise choices, not just this holiday weekend, but all the time. If you choose to consume alcohol, don’t drive. Have a designated driver or call a cab. If all options fail, call us and we will find you a safe ride.”

The Sheriff’s Office will have extra deputies on our roads and waterways over the long holiday weekend conducting proactive DWI patrols throughout the parish.
