DPS Troopers Stepping Up Patrols for Memorial Day Weekend

Staff Report
NewsWest 9

To avoid another death on our roads, Texas State Troopers will be boosting their patrols for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.

They'll be looking for drunk drivers, speeders and even those who don't have their seatbelts buckled up.

The increase in patrols will begin on Friday and run through Monday.

Last year, 600 people were arrested for driving drunk on Texas highways during the Memorial Day weekend.
