The New Orleans Police Department's traffic division will conduct a sobriety checkpoint tonight in the "Uptown area," the department said in a news release.
The checkpoint will begin at approximately 9 p.m., and last until about 5 a.m. Friday morning. In addition to a lack of alcohol, police are advising motorists to have proper documentation if stopped, including proof of insurance and a driver's license.
"I would like to remind all drivers to always drink responsibly and use a designated driver," Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas said in the release.
The Archdiocese of New Orleans has yet to settle the disputed closings of the Church of Good Counsel and St. Henry Church in Uptown. Parishioners there continue to occupy the churches, hoping a settlement can be reached.
