According to the press release from Shreveport Police Chief Wayne Smith:

This checkpoint aims to identify and address drivers who are driving of the influence of alcohol or narcotics but is not limited to that offense.   Drinking and driving kills 28 people a day in the U.S. — about one person every 52 minutes, according to the NHTSA. That is more than 10,000 lives lost each year to drunk driving. Drunk driving is responsible for about 1/3 of traffic fatalities.


In a continuing effort to help curb the number of families affected by fatality crashes in our state, funding for the checkpoint has been provided by the Highway Safety Commission.
