Understand what might lead to a traffic stop this weekend

Police officers have a lot to watch on any given shift. This holiday weekend is no exception to this. In an effort to keep the roads safe, police officers will be out in full force. This means that there isn't going to be any tolerance for drunk drivers. Instead, anyone who is going to drink alcohol this weekend needs to make sure that they can get home without driving.

As the warm summer months continue to march forward, people are going to have parties and other activities. In many cases, these activities are going to involve alcoholic beverages. It is imperative that you take the consumption of alcohol seriously and make sure that you are acting in a responsible manner.
