Deputies from the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office will conduct multiple DWI checkpoints between now and the end of the year at undisclosed locations in St. Tammany Parish. The checkpoints are part of the ongoing, proactive “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign to combat impaired driving.

The manpower for this initiative is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.

“As always, the Sheriff’s Office will be patrolling the roads during the holiday season with a zero tolerance for drunk driving,” said Sheriff Randy Smith. “We hope these checkpoints serve as a deterrent to drinking and driving. If you choose to consume alcohol, don’t drive. Choose a non-drinking friend as your designated driver or if you can’t arrange for a ride home, call us (985-898-2338) for a safe ride home this holiday season without cost or penalty.”
