Published 10:33 am Monday, December 27, 2021

Lafourche Parish – In an effort to combat impaired driving in our area, Louisiana State Police Troop C, in partnership with the Thibodaux Police Department and the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office, plans to conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Thursday, December 30, 2021, from approximately 8:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. at an undisclosed location in Lafourche Parish. Our mission is to detect and arrest impaired drivers before they cause injury or death to themselves or others.

Motorists are encouraged to never drive impaired and to designate a sober driver before consuming any alcohol. To report impaired drivers, motorists should dial *LSP (*577) to reach the nearest Louisiana State Police troop location or dial 911 to contact local law enforcement.

Support and funding for this checkpoint is provided through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
