People wonder why we mention these sobriety checkpoints. Here’s why: The NOPD is required by the Louisiana Supreme Court to send out a public advisory. Here it is, straight from the police.
The New Orleans Police Department’s Traffic Division will conduct a sobriety checkpoint, in Orleans Parish, on Friday March 8, 2013, beginning at approximately 9:00 P.M. and will conclude at approximately 5:00 A.M. Motorists will experience minimal delays and should have the proper documentation available if requested, i.e., proof of insurance, driver’s license, etc.
