Livingston Parish deputies to hold sobriety checkpoint
LIVINGSTON PARISH - Sheriff's deputies in Livingston Parish said a sobriety checkpoint will be conducted in the parish on Saturday as part of an intensive error to crack down on drunken driving during the holiday season.
Specifics about the location or active hours of the Dec. 27 checkpoint were not included in the release from the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office on Friday. Motorists were urged to drive carefully and comply with all state traffic regulations beyond not getting behind the wheel while intoxicated.
The LPSO said money from a federal grant provided by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission will fund overtime pay for the officers involved in the operation of the checkpoint.
