If you’re planning to kick the long weekend off with a banging good time on Friday please be aware that the men and women of the Lafayette Police Department will be hosting a DUI/Driver’s license checkpoint on Pleasant Hill Road.
Officers will set up shop looking for the inebriated or the unlicensed – or both – starting at 7 p.m. on Pleasant Hill near Stanley Boulevard.
Now you know.
Wouldn’t a police presence down around where all the bars are, like midtown, have a stronger deterrent effect?
A worthy question, Larry, and we’re actually getting it a lot. We have a lot of “lurking” Law Enforcement on our pages and it would be nice to hear their thinking on this approach. We’ll have to wait and see. In the interim, we’ll be dialing up Uber if we fall in with bad company and land in the Arms of Bacchus tonight…
