Troopers on patrol to make sure roadways are safe for holiday travelers

As you hit the road this holiday season make sure you are driving safely and obeying all traffic laws. That's a message from the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

Troopers will be conducting checkpoints looking to make sure child restraint and seat belt laws are obeyed and that no one is driving impaired. They'll also be looking for anyone who is speeding.

The 2014 Thanksgiving Holiday Enforcement Period runs from Wednesday at 6 p.m. through midnight Sunday.
