If are one of those people hitting the highways for the holiday weekend, the Department of Public Safety has a message for you.

Slow down and be careful.

This year, troopers are participating in Operation CARE, which stands for combined accident reduction effort.

It's a nationwide effort to reduce highways deaths during the holiday weekends.

From Wednesday through Sunday, troopers will be out in force watching for wreckless or aggressive driving, speeding, people driving drunk or under the influence, and people not wearing seat belts.
