Louisiana State Police will conduct a DWI and seatbelt checkpoint Friday in Webster Parish.

The checkpoint will be monitored from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. in an undisclosed location.

According to troopers, the checkpoint will help find and remove impaired drivers from the road.

Louisiana State Police Troop G says 48 percent of fatal crashes in 2015 involved impaired drivers and nearly 60 percent involved motorists that were improperly restrained or not restrained at all.

Motorists are encouraged to report impaired drivers by dialing *LSP (*577) from their cellphone or to contact their local law enforcement.
