Livingston deputies to hold sobriety checkpoint
LIVINGSTON - Sheriff's deputies in Livingston Parish reported their plans to conduct a sobriety checkpoint in the parish on Saturday, Jan. 31 in an effort to protect citizens from the threat of those who choose to drink and get behind the wheel.
Specifics about the checkpoint location or the times it will be in operation are not released in advance.
Deputies said, regardless of the presence of sobriety checkpoints, motorists should always drive carefully and comply with all Louisiana traffic regulations.
Overtime pay for LPSO deputies uninvolved in overseeing the checkpoint operation is funded through grant monies, made available by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
