Friday evening, there will be a DWI Checkpoint in Morgan City. State Police troopers will man the event at an undisclosed location in Morgan City.

"The consequences of drinking and driving can be costly no matter how many drinks you have consumed," says Master Trooper Brooks David. "The task of stopping impaired drivers is a joint effort of law enforcement agencies and the public. By never allowing an impaired driver to get behind the wheel of a vehicle and reporting dangerous drivers to law enforcement, the public can play an important role in the reduction of crashes caused by impaired drivers. Making poor decisions in a vehicle such as driving impaired, driving while distracted, or not wearing a seat belt leads to serious injuries and deaths every day across the state. Making the responsible decision can mean the difference between life and death."

No length of time was given for the event.
