Deputies from the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office will conduct a DWI 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 are out there every day looking for drivers that are under the influence, and we hope these checkpoints serve as a deterrent to drinking and driving,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “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.”
