On December 27th, 2023, the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Houma Police Department will join forces for a DWI checkpoint in the city of Houma. The two agencies encourage residents to work alongside the Houma Police Department in promoting safe travel on local roads. If you suspect an impaired driver, please reach out to the Houma Police Department at 985-873-6371 or TPSO at 985-876-2500.
The Louisiana Highway Safety Commission (LHSC) supports this initiative through grant money, which funds the state’s highway safety programs. These programs aim to decrease traffic accidents and their consequences such as fatalities, injuries, and property damage. Traffic crashes typically involve three factors: the roadway/environment, the vehicle, and the driver. Remember not to drink and drive for everyone’s safety.
