CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) - The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office will conduct a DWI and seat belt checkpoint somewhere in the parish on Friday evening.

Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said the checkpoints "have proven to be very effective  in discouraging citizens from driving while impaired and people are more likely to designate a  driver when they know sobriety checkpoints are being conducted."
