Road sobriety checkpoints will be in effect in seven parishes this Thanksgiving weekend, police said.

The checkpoints, which are set to start this evening, will also be joined by heightened patrols enforcing Operation Vega.

Officers with the Community Policing Division, Tactical Operations and Roads Policing Unit will be stationed throughout Hamilton Parish, Smith’s, Devonshire, Pembroke, Paget, Warwick and Southampton.

A police spokesman said: “Please plan ahead and do your part by not driving or riding impaired.

“If you are intending to go out and socialise, make sure you have arranged for a designated driver, taxi or another responsible transportation service to get you to your destination safely.”

The checkpoints will operate from tomorrow to Sunday.
