The Florida Highway Patrol is out in force all holiday weekend to make sure you’re safe on the road.
FHP tells us they will be increasing the number of patrol on the road between Thursday and Sunday, specifically focused on targeting impaired drivers. In fact the agency says all uniformed personnel will be on duty during that time frame.
In addition to getting drunk drivers off the road, FHP says they will be enforcing all traffic violations and providing more services to motorists who break down or otherwise need assistance.
You can also make a difference on the road. FHP says you should always have a designated driver planned ahead of any celebrations. If you see an impaired driver on the road, you can also contact police.
