SHREVEPORT, LA-   Shreveport Police to hold Seatbelt Checkpoint

The Shreveport Police Department will conduct a Seatbelt Checkpoint on April 19, 2024, between 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. in the southeast region of the city. This checkpoint will target drivers who are not in compliance with Louisiana’s occupant protection laws but is not limited to those violations.

The focus of this checkpoint is to reduce the number of deaths or severe injuries that are a result of unrestrained motorists involved in crashes. The guidelines for the physical construction of the checkpoint will be based on the Louisiana State Police Roadside Safety Checkpoint Manual. This checkpoint will be funded by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission’s highway safety grant.

Traffic Safety Facts:

Buckling up keeps you safe and secure inside of your vehicle and prevents ejection which often results in death.

Air bags alone are not enough to protect you; in fact, the force of an air bag can seriously injure or kill you if you are not buckled up.

Not using seatbelts properly puts you at risk in a crash.

Buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself in a crash.
