Deputies from the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint over the long Labor Day weekend 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 manpower for this initiative is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission. 

“We hope these checkpoints serve as a deterrent to drinking and driving,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “We ask our citizens to please make responsible decisions. If you choose to consume alcohol, don’t drive. Make a plan in advance. Have a non-drinking designated driver or call a cab.”
