If you're driving or shopping this Labor Day, get ready for a busy holiday weekend on the roads.
Triple AAA Arizona predicts more than 668,000 people will be traveling over the next couple of days. To try and make the drive a little easier, Arizona Department of Transportation officials say they will be lifting road closures around construction zones.
Extra vehicles and personal will also be staged at high traffic areas so that disabled vehicles can be quickly removed from the road.
Valley police officers will also be out in FULL force.
Across Arizona, 65 law enforcement agencies will be participating in a large D.U.I. crackdown. From August 29 - September 1 agencies will target drunk drivers with sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols.
Comment: What a continuing sad state of affairs.
Sixty-five law enforcement agencies are engaged to catch people doing something that EVERYONE should well know by now is illegal, dangerous and deadly.
How many millions of dollars of resources are used each year to catch and prevent drunk driving and drunk driving accidents? Will people ever get it????
