According to the State Police, close to $400,000 has been allocated to put more patrols on the streets and to conduct more sobriety checkpoints. State Police said they hope to build on last year’s campaign, which helped reduce the number of fatalities by 6.7 percent. “What happened last year is that we got the awareness up,” said State Police spokesman Omar Landrum. “The thought is that if we increase the program, maybe we can get more drunk drivers off the street.” Landrum said that drivers believed to be impaired will be asked to take a field sobriety test and if they fail, will be taken to jail with no leniency. According to Landrum, more money is being spent in Louisiana, and especially New Orleans, due to the 24-hour entertainment provided, often with access to alcohol.
