NOPD To Conduct Thursday Night Sobriety Checkpoint

Mar 19, 2014

The New Orleans Police Department will conduct a sobriety checkpoint Thursday night, the department announced in a press release.

The sobriety checkpoint will begin at approximately 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 20, and last until about 5 a.m. the next morning. The NOPD says motorists should expect minimal delays, and should have proper documentation, including proof of insurance and a driver's license.

The NOPD is required to provide advance notice of a sobriety checkpoint, but not its exact location.

Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas was quoted in the release reminding drivers to "always drink responsibly and use a designated driver."
