DPS to enhance patrols for Labor Day

Posted by: tdt -

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is increasing DWI patrols through September 2, which includes the Labor Day holiday weekend. DPS troopers will focus DWI patrols in high-risk locations at times when alcohol related crashes are most frequent. The enhanced patrols that target impaired drivers are funded through a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“DPS is committed to helping keep Texas roadways are safe for all travelers, and these enhanced patrols are aimed at saving lives by getting impaired drivers off the road,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “The Department urges all drivers to do their part this Labor Day holiday - and every day - by obeying traffic laws and not drinking and driving.”
