Avoyelles and Cenla drivers should take note if your driving through Rapides tonight.
A Sobriety Checkpoint is scheduled for Friday Night at an undisclosed location in Rapides Parish.
Louisiana State Police has zero tolerance for impaired drivers. To combat impaired driving in our area, Louisiana State Police Troop E, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, and the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint this Friday, May 28, 2010 from approximately 9:00 pm to 3:00 am, weather and traffic conditions permitting, in Rapides Parish.
The mission will be to intercept and incarcerate impaired drivers before they can cause injury or death to themselves, their passengers, or members of the public. Drivers are less likely to drive impaired when they recognize the increased probability of law enforcement action.
We are asking the public to make the mature decision and to designate a sober driver. Remember, “You drink, You drive, You lose”!
To report aggressive/impaired driving call *LSP (*577) from your cellular phone or your local law enforcement agency.
