Area law enforcement is stepping up to try to keep our roads safer during 4th of July Holiday.
The troopers say they will be increasing their man power, setting up driver's license check points, and putting more patrols on major highways and beach traffic roads.
One of their biggest concerns is the increased number of motorists driving through the area who are unfamiliar with the roads.
“Where people in our area tend to be a little more cautious when they're coming up to a major intersection on one of these major highways here, these people won't. So, what happens is you have to be more on the look out for people who don't know where they're going,” said Corp. Tracy Nelson of Alabama State Troopers.
The state's 30-hour holiday period has already begun and ends at midnight Wednesday
