LSP issue Memorial Day Weekend warning
BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The Memorial Day Weekend is approaching, and that means many of you will take to your cars to head out on an extended weekend vacation. Louisiana State Troopers will be out in full force making sure that your family stays safe with on the road.
Troopers will enact the “No Refusal” and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns from May 23 through June 5.
“No Refusal” has proven successful over the past two years. Troopers will participate in DWI checkpoints throughout the state.
But keeping drunk drivers off the road isn’t the only issue. The majority of fatal car accidents happen because the driver or passenger was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. For this reason, Troopers will pull over and issue a ticket to anyone caught driving without a seatbelt.
These enforcements are not meant as a hindrance to anyone’s weekend fun. Rather, this will help ensure that everyone will have a good time, as well as make it home alive.
