Extra enforcement, patrol over holiday weekend

The increase in patrols for the Allen County Sheriff's Office will be funded through a Selective Enforcement Grant that allows more deputies to be out keeping the roads safe.

"Our primary message this Memorial Day weekend is to avoid distractions, designate a sober driver and obey the speed limit", Oliver said.

Kiii News Reporter Briana Whitney went Live along SPID with more details about what State Troopers will be looking for.

Captain Hotz tells Missourinet that every available trooper will be on the road, enforcing traffic laws and assisting motorists. Although the focus of the MEP is seat belt usage, the CHP will be closely watching for distracted drivers and those driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol.

According to AAA, almost 35 million people are expected to hit the road for the 2017 Memorial Day Weekend. The Patrol will be on the lookout for those operating a vessel while impaired and lifejacket violations.

Trump lands in Israel: What to watch
He is to meet Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas Tuesday as he seeks ways to restart moribund Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts. Israel's prime minister has praised President Donald Trump's "clarity and conviction" in his speech in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

He said it's important to obey the "Move Over Law" and get out of the way for emergency vehicles.

Eight people have died on Montana roads in just the last week, and MHP plans to step up its own patrols as people head to lakes, campgrounds and state and national parks. "We would like nothing more than to reduce the number of traffic and boating crashes, injuries and fatalities". Make sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. MHP wants you to "Drive to Survive".

"All across the state, troopers are prepared and available to provide assistance and protection", said Karsten.

Patience also is a key to staying safe on busy highways. That's the message from Nevada Highway Patrol or NHP on this Memorial Day Weekend.
