The Labor Day weekend has arrived and Texas Highway Patrol Troopers will be out in force looking for impaired drivers and speeders.
The increased enforcement is part of a program that places focused DWI patrols in high-risk locations at times when alcohol-related crashes are most frequent.
These extra patrols are funded through a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation.
Last year, troopers arrested 718 people for DWI during the Labor Day holiday.
Troopers also wrote 12,065 speeding citations; 2,056 seat belt/child restraint tickets; and 1,943 no insurance citations.
