Troopers to Target Interstates Over Labor Day Weekend

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WFLA/AP)- The Florida Highway Patrol is joining with other states to increase patrols along interstate 10 during the labor day holiday weekend.

Starting on Friday and running through Monday additional troopers will roam the North Florida highway looking for drunk drivers, speeders and other law-breakers.

Troopers will also be checking for distracted drivers, motorists who don't use seat belts and drivers who make improper lane changes.

Law enforcement officials say the goal is to have the same level of traffic enforcement along the entire stretch of the 2,460 mile highway that runs from Florida to California.
