Lafayette Drunk Driving Numbers Skyrocket

KATC is reporting that the number of Drunk Driving cases in Lafayette has skyrocketed this year. So far the Lafayette Police Department is reporting 300 cases of DWI year to date, which surpasses all of 2008 by about 50 cases...and we still have 4 1/2 months left to go. Tonight the Lafayette Police Department will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint somewhere within the city limits between the hours of 9pm and 3am so be careful and if you choose to drink, don't drive.

  2. Ahhhhh....another feather in the cap!!!
