BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — As one of the booziest American holidays, the July 4 weekend poses a higher-than-normal risk of drunk or impaired driving. As part of the Get Sober or Get Pulled Over safety campaign, the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office will put extra effort into getting impaired motorists off the road.
From Wednesday to Monday, extra APSO deputies will be on duty with the primary focus of locating and arresting impaired drivers, according to APSO.
APSO indicated that deputies will also conduct traffic enforcement activities to encourage safe driving.
