JACKSON, Miss. (WCBI) – You might even see a rise in freeway patrol beginning Memorial day weekend.
Mississippi Freeway Patrol is teaming up with Louisiana State Police and Tennessee Freeway Patrol to encourage protected driving.
State troopers might be stationed up and down Interstate 55 throughout peak journey instances.
Their hope is to scale back the variety of crashes, promote seat belt use, and reduce rushing.
“Be aware of what they’re doing once they drive, in case you drink, undoubtedly have a delegated driver, in case you’re on that mobile phone, let’s put that mobile phone down, as a result of it might wait, and lastly with seat belts, we need to ensure that we put on our seat belts as a result of the life you save could also be your personal,” stated Workers Sergeant Bryan McGee, MHP Troop F.
The Memorial Day enforcement interval begins at 6 Friday morning and runs via Monday at midnight.
