The consequences of drinking and driving can be costly no matter how many drinks you have consumed. The task of stopping impaired drivers is a joint effort of law enforcement agencies and the public. By never allowing an impaired driver to get behind the wheel of a vehicle and reporting dangerous drivers to law enforcement, the public can play an important role in the reduction of crashes caused by impaired drivers.
Making poor decisions in a vehicle such as driving impaired, driving while distracted, or not wearing a seat belt leads to serious injuries and deaths every day across the state. Making the responsible decision can mean the difference between life and death.
Motorists that observe impaired drivers are urged to call *LSP (*577) and report that activity to the Louisiana State Police. Drive sober or get pulled over.
