Seatbelt checkpoints scheduled for Wednesday and Friday

Seatbelt checkpoints scheduled for Wednesday and Friday

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office will conduct two seat belt checks in Lafourche Parish this week. The first will be during the daylight hours of Wednesday, July 1st and the second one will be held during the evening hours of Friday, July 3.

During the checkpoints, deputies will be checking motorists for seat belt and safety violations, as well as other violations such as inspection tags. This checkpoint is part of Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office year-long campaign designed to raise awareness for these types of violations and make the highways of the parish safe for all motorists.

Additionally, Sheriff Webre says there will be saturated patrols throughout the Independence Day weekend as deputies ensure any impaired drivers are removed from our roadways.
