State Patrol Ready for Labor Day Enforcement

AAA reports that more than 630,000 people are expected to take to Wisconsin roadways this Labor Day weekend, and the more cars on the highway, the higher the potential is for accidents to happen.

Luckily the Wisconsin State Patrol says they will be stepping up patrols throughout the state in order to help keep drivers safe.

They will be paying extra attention to looking out for drunk drivers as well as anyone who is exceeding the speed limit.
They say that things so far have been very busy, but they are ready to handle the extra load.

"Right now traffic has picked up already. Most of our resources are out their right now. Our goal is to eliminate or at least minimize the traffic crashes." says State Patrol Lt. Steve Krueger.

AAA predicts that this will be the busiest Labor Day travel weekend since 2008.
