Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office

If you plan on drinking to celebrate the nation’s independence, make sure to get a driver who isn’t.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with several other local law enforcement agencies, will increase its patrols and checkpoints over the Fourth of July weekend, Sheriff Jason Ard has announced.

Part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, the extra patrols and checkpoints are in an effort to protect citizens from those who choose to drink and drive, Ard said in a statement.

Specifics will not be released in advance.

Grant monies, made available through a federal grant administered by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission, will fund overtime pay for the officers involved.

Motorists are urged to drive carefully and comply with all Louisiana traffic regulations.
