CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office will conduct a seatbelt checkpoint on Saturday at an undisclosed location in the parish.

"Conducting these checkpoints is a vital part in an overall effort to ensure the safety of our citizens," said Sheriff Tony Mancuso. "It has been proven that wearing a seat belt can save a life."

"Also remember there is a law in Louisiana that mandates all passengers in a vehicle to be buckled up, even those in the back seat," Mancuso added.

Checkpoints are funded by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
