Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving All Areas of Louisiana


Law enforcement agencies across Louisiana are preparing for a DWI crackdown over the Mardi Gras season.  These law enforcement agencies will increase the number of patrol officers looking for drunken drivers and will conduct more DWI checkpoints.  Historically in Louisiana, the Mardi Gras season sees many deadly accidents related to DWI.

The Louisiana Highway Safety Commission has provided grants to police departments and sheriff’s offices for enhanced DWI enforcement from Feb. 5 through Mardi Gras day on Feb. 21.  Furthermore, police officers will be on the streets with the help of a new $350,000 RV that has been equipped to do DWI breath tests in the field, allowing officers to quickly process drunken driving suspects rather than returning to the office for each test.

The RV was first deployed as part of the Lafayette Police Department’s Alcohol Traffic Action Campaign and is already credited with helping boost the department’s DWI arrests.

If you have been arrested and charged with DWI in Louisiana, contact Baton Rouge DWI Lawyer Carl Barkemeyer to discuss your case.
