Troopers To Step Up Enforcement Dec. 23 – 25

    The Mississippi Highway Patrol will begin the 2014 Christmas holiday enforcement period on Tuesday, December 23 at 6 p.m. and conclude Thursday, December 25 at midnight. With the expected increase in holiday travel due to low fuel prices, all available manpower will be utilized in establishing checkpoints to prevent impaired driving and saturation patrols to combat distracted and reckless driving.
    In 2013, MHP investigated 4 fatalities on state and federal highway systems throughout the holiday period.
    “We are asking  motorist to make responsible decisions that not only ensure safe travel, but also allows  families to reach their intended destination,” reported MHP Lieutenant Johnny Poulos
