Bossier Sheriff Looking For Those Under The Influence Saturday
While it is never a good idea to drink and drive, you certainly do not want to be caught under the influence this weekend in Bossier Parish!
With the LSU game scheduled to begin Saturday night at 6:30, you might have plans on attending a party to watch, and if you're planning on consuming alcohol, you will definitely want to make plans to have a designated driver or make plans for Uber to pick you up after the game.
Why? The Bossier Sheriff's Office has announced that they will conduct a sobriety checkpoint this Saturday evening, September 9th, that will start at 8:00 pm and continue to run until sometime early Sunday morning at an undisclosed location in Bossier Parish.
The goal of the checkpoint is to identify and remove impaired drivers from the road before they cause serious injury or death to themselves or others, and to increase public awareness of the seriousness of driving while impaired.
The Louisiana State Police and the West Monroe Police Department will assist.
In 2022, 33% of the fatality crashes in Louisiana involved an impaired driver.
The sobriety checkpoint is being conducted as part of a grant awarded to the Bossier Sheriff’s Office from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission for DWI Enforcement.
Motorists are encouraged to report impaired drivers to law enforcement at any time in support of “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” The Bossier Sheriff's Office can be reached 24 hours a day at 318-965-2203.
