It’s certain to be a busy weekend on the roadways.
“We’re encouraging Texans to make safe driving a priority during the Fourth of July weekend due to the fact there’s going to be more travelers on the road,” DPS Trooper Deon Cockrell said.
DPS plans to increase patrols this weekend, a weekend known for it’s drinking and celebrating.
“Out there in force, not only just to look for drunk drivers, speeders, and seat belts and such, but to keep the drivers on the roads safe and make them aware that the roads are full of extra drivers and there are people out there possibly drinking,” Cockrell said. “We want them to know that we’ll be out there looking for them.”
So don’t drink and drive.
