More Traffic, More Police DUI Patrols This Labor Day Weekend

A Press Release from Connecticut State Police

With Labor Day 2013 travel volume expected to increase over last year, Connecticut State Police are reminding motorists to expect heavy traffic, exercise caution, and allow extra time to reach their destination. It is estimated that the number of people traveling by automobile for the holiday period will increase in New England compared to last year.

Connecticut State Troopers will be concentrating on enforcement of drunken driving, speeding, safety belt, and distracted driving laws during the entire Labor Day Weekend. Troopers will utilize both traditional and nontraditional patrol vehicles on patrol searching for reckless and intoxicated drivers. Troopers will man sobriety checkpoints and targeted patrols to intercept drunk drivers.  State Police Colonel Danny R. Stebbins said, “Our Troopers will do their part to enhance the safety of all on the roads and highways of Connecticut.”
