Bossier Sheriff’s Office Schedules Sobriety Checkpoint
The Bossier Sheriff's Office is joinging with the Louisiana State Police Troop G and the Bossier City Police department to organize a sobriety checkpoint Saturday, May 28th beginning at 10P at an undisclosed location.
The sobriety checkpoint is being funded by $14,040 grant awarded by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission to the sheriff's office specifically designated for DWI Enforcement.
The goal of the checkpoint is to increase the public awareness of the dangers of driving while impaired, and identify and remove impaired drivers before they cause injury or death to themselves or others.
State police witness preventable motor vehicle crashes. Impairment and lack of seat belt usage are primary causes of crashes across the state of Louisiana. Louisiana State Police urge motorists to have a plan in place that includes a designated driver when consuming alcohol. Alcohol can impair visual ability, alter the sense of time and space, impair fine motor skills, and decrease reaction times. Alcohol can begin to impair a person's ability to safely operate a motor vehicle after just one drink. Please choose to not drive impaired or ride with an impaired driver, and always buckle up.
As we enjoy Memorial Day weekend, you're encouraged to have fun, but please do so responsibly.
