The Texas Department of Public Safety says they will have troopers out in force through the Thanksgiving weekend as people travel to and from their holiday destination.

DPS Director Steven McCraw says that troopers will be on the lookout for those who are speeding, driving recklessly, not wearing seatbelts, or driving while intoxicated.

Additionally, DPS says drivers need to be cognizant of the “Move Over-Slow Down” law if they come upon any type of emergency vehicle on the side of a roadway with emergency lights activated.
