This is the second "Treme" checkpoint announced this month. They must like it over there wherever they are. Where does Serpas consider Treme's boundaries to be anyway? If he's working from the 73 census-tract defined "official" neighborhoods, then he's got anywhere within this rectangular space bounded by Broad, Rampart, Esplanade, and St. Louis streets to hide. But if I had to put money on it I'd say they'll be near the Claiborne overpass somewhere either at Orleans or Esplanade.New Orleans LA,-As required by the Louisiana Supreme Court, the New Orleans Police Department is issuing a public advisory regarding a sobriety checkpoint that will be conducted tomorrow night.The New Orleans Police Department’s Traffic Division will conduct a sobriety checkpoint, in Treme, beginning at approximately 9:00 P.M. and will conclude at approximately 5:00 A.M. Motorists will experience minimal delays and should have the proper documentation available if requested, i.e., proof of insurance, driver’s license, etc.Superintendent of Police Ronal Serpas said” I would like to remind all drivers to always drink responsibly and use a designated driver”.
Oh and while we're on the topic of that part of town, I was in Congo Square last weekend where I took this photo of the official signage. I'm probably not the first person to ask but what is purpose of the quotation marks around the word, "vicinity"?
