Texas DPS Stepping Up Enforcement For Labor Day Weekend

Drink, drive, go to jail.

That's what the Texas Department of Public Safety is saying today.

All available troopers though out the state will be on duty today through Monday looking for drunk drivers, speeders, and seat belt violators.

During the Labor Day weekend last year DPS troopers arrested 912 people for drunk driving and handed out nearly 16 thousand speeding tickets.

DPS says drivers who break the law should expect their chances of getting a ticket to dramatically increase this weekend.
