As I always say, if you're going out, have a great time, just make sure to have a safe time. Have a designated driver or have plans for an Uber or a cab. This weekend will be full of graduation celebrations, and Lafayette police want to make sure everyone stays safe.

The Lafayette Police Department has announced they will conduct a OWI Checkpoint within Lafayette city limits this Friday, May 19th, between 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.

Police say the checkpoint will target impaired drivers under the influence of alcohol and other dangerous substances. Officers will be responding with zero tolerance to those drivers who are found to be under the influence.

Have fun, stay safe.
