LOUISIANA (FOX44) - If you're hitting the road for the holiday weekend, you're not alone. Thousands of travelers are already congesting the roadways.
As the weekend wears on, those roads can be deadly.
Louisiana State Troopers are stepping up patrols to keep you safe.
DWI checkpoints are set up state wide, and in several parishes, drivers will not have the right to refuse sobriety tests.
They say, if you're caught, you're going to jail.
Troopers will also be looking for drivers who are texting and passengers not wearing seatbelts.
