LSUA Police to Conduct Safety Campaign

The LSUA Police Department will be conducting a Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.

The LSU of Alexandria Police Department will be conducting a Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign from today through the Labor Day holiday.

The department is working to set up a checkpoint with the Louisiana State Police to catch those who are driving impaired.

In Louisiana, anyone driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 grams per deciliter or higher is considered legally impaired.  In 2010, fatalities in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes accounted for 31 percent of the total motor vehicle traffic fatalities.

Additionally, officers will be looking for moving violations such as following too close, improper lane usage and running radar on speeders.

The campaign is being funded through the second half of a $2,500 grant that was secured through the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.  The rest of the grant was used to conduct a seat belt usage campaign over the Memorial Day holiday.
