The Houma Police Department will conduct a DWI Checkpoint within city limits on Thursday.
The operation will be funded by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission, which administers the State’s highway safety grant program.
That program has awarded HPD the funding to conduct various enforcement initiatives.
Louisiana’s Highway Safety Program is designed to reduce traffic crashes which result in deaths, injuries and property damage.
Factors that are considered unsafe are driving after drinking, speeding, not using occupant protection devices, texting while driving, etc. These factors can contribute to some of the most severe traffic crashes. LHSC’s highway safety plan seeks to coordinate and unite state and local programs and projects to reduce driver behavior by focusing on enforcement, public information, education and legislation.
Houma Police will continue to conduct various traffic initiatives to promote highway safety.
