Patrol to be out in force for holiday weekend
LAKE OF THE OZARKS - In some ways, Memorial Day weekend is the gateway
to summer fun. The long weekend is an opportunity to visit family or
friends, go to one of Missouri’s lakes, or enjoy any number of
recreation opportunities in Missouri.
Colonel Sandra K. Karsten, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) would like the public to make safety a priority this holiday weekend.
“Use a seat belt and pay attention when you drive, and wear your life jacket when you're on or near the water,” she said. “Know where work zones are located along your route, and if alcohol is part of your holiday, make sure driving a vehicle or a vessel is not.”
The MSHP will be participating in Operation C.A.R.E. (Crash Awareness Reduction Effort) during the long holiday weekend. This means every available trooper will be on the road enforcing traffic laws and assisting motorists.
In addition, the Patrol will assign troopers to 20-mile intervals along Interstates 29, 44, 55, and 70, and U.S. Highways 60 and 61 on May 26, 2017 and May 29, 2017.
