Holiday weekend trooper enforcement
(2008-08-30)
(WOUB) - It's a holiday weekend and people are hitting the road for one last summer outing.

Triple A is projecting that more than 34 million people will travel fifty miles or more from home.

That number is down from a year ago but not by much, less than one percent.

But Ohio State Highway Trooper Robert Bradley says you'll still be seeing more troopers keeping an eye on things.

"We're just out there like any other day, enforcing the traffic laws, trying to get people to slow down, be aware, and the number one thing is to reduce traffic fatalities," Bradlely says.

He says excessive speed is the number one cause of traffic fatalities in the state of Ohio.
