According to troopers there is an increased chance of traffic accidents and fatalities over the holiday weekend, so they plan to be out in full force making sure people are following traffic laws.
Highway patrol is asking people to remember to wear a seat-belt and of course don’t drink and drive.
Trooper Amanda Signs said, "If you want to drink, drink, but you need to stay home or call someone. There's nothing wrong with that. Call a taxi, call another person, a sober driver to drive you home."
The highway patrols “Click It Or Ticket” campaign is in effect right now. Officers will also be conducting traffic stops.
