FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Indiana State Police will increase patrols starting Friday and will concentrate their enforcement efforts on impaired drivers, distracted drivers and for those drivers and passengers not buckled up.
Last year during the Labor Day weekend, 2,101 crashes occurred throughout Indiana resulting in 507 injuries and 15 deaths.
State Troopers would like to remind all motorists that they must do their part to help ensure our roadways are safe.
Troopers encourage everyone to follow these safety tips:
• Ensure everyone is buckled up.
• Don’t drive impaired.
• If you plan to consume alcohol, make sure you have a plan to get home safely.
• Don’t drive distracted.
• If you’re traveling a long distance, make sure you are well rested. A fatigued driver is a dangerous driver.
