Extra DWI enforcement and overall safety stressed by LPPD
for upcoming New Year’s weekend

As 2017 comes to an end and we eagerly anticipate the arrival of 2018, the New Year’s holiday weekend becomes one of fun times, family gatherings, and joyous celebrations. With good food, relaxing music, and a short break from our busy schedules, we collectively enjoy the passing of another year. Therefore, to get the most out of the extended weekend, the La Porte Police Department is asking for the entire community’s help in making sure each of us carry out safe celebrations.

As many people will be taking a break from their normal work schedule, residents are reminded of the added fact that there will be extra vehicles and pedestrians along the roadways. Therefore, the police department encourages motorists to make sure your vehicle is in safe driving condition, watch your speed of travel, and avoid allowing alcohol to interfere with driving responsibilities. Equally important, if you are attending a celebration where alcohol will be served, please select a designated driver before attending the event. As an additional reminder, La Porte officers will be out in force for the entire three-day weekend, with several units specifically targeting intoxicated drivers.

The goal for La Porte Police is to have a zero-accident weekend and, with the help of all community members, the department believes the goal can be achieved. Please do your part to ensure area safety, both along our roadways and among residential areas. For more information regarding holiday safety, please contact the agency at 281-471-2141.
