The message from Louisiana State Police and local agencies this 4th of July holiday – don’t even THINK about getting into your vehicle if you are impaired.

From our friends at theadvertiser.com: State police and local agencies are putting extra patrols on the road to target impaired drivers over the Fourth of July holiday.

Last year, three people died in Louisiana highway crashes during the Independence Day holiday. Alcohol was involved in all three crashes, the Highway Safety Commission said.

Seven people were killed in the 2011 holiday period, and at least four died in alcohol-related crashes.

Lt. Col. John LeBlanc, executive director of the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission, said increased enforcement campaigns during holidays and other special occasions are playing a role in helping save lives.
