On Saturday, March 16 from 9pm to 3am, the Lafayette Police Department will be conducting an OWI checkpoint within the incorporated limits of Lafayette. The purpose of the checkpoint is to target impaired drivers under the influence of alcohol or any other dangerous substance.

Officers working the checkpoint will respond with zero tolerance for drivers found under the influence. Of course, as always, drivers are encouraged to arrange a designated driver if they plan to partake in alcohol.

For those attending Patty in the Parc in downtown Lafayette on Saturday evening, don't forget that there will be a special booth set up for designated drivers. Those folks will get a special wristband and free Red Bull all evening.
