FHP Out in Force this Holiday Wknd

If you're planning a road trip for Labor Day, you won't be alone... millions of Floridians will be on the highways with you.

The Florida Highway Patrol says this is one of their busy times when troopers who normally work behind a desk will be out on the road.

Weekend travel is expected to be up more than 4 percent from last year, thanks to improving economic conditions.

FHP continues its 'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' campaign targeting drunk driving, but troopers are also looking for speeders, aggressive drivers and those not following the state's "Move Over" law.  That means you are supposed to move over one lane if you are passing a vehicle on the shoulder.
