Amarillo Police Steps Up Patrols for Holidays

The Amarillo Police Department would like to remind you to drive safely when you're out on the road this holiday.

Extra officers will be on patrol during the holiday period in an effort to reduce the amount of drunk drivers and speeders.

The Texas Department of Transportation will fund the enforcement effort with a traffic grant.

Police say the extra patrol is to keep you safe and they want to remind everyone to remember to arrange for safe transportation if you drink over the holidays.
