MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - State troopers have started their newest
version of the "Take Back Our Highways" safety program.
The 24-hour-a-day traffic blitz started Wednesday and runs until
Nov. 26. Assistant Public Safety Director F.A. Bingham says every
available state troopers is on the highways, and troopers are
focusing impaired drivers.
Bingham said drunken driving increases during the holidays
because there's more traffic on the roads, the holidays are
conducive to more alcohol use, and it's hunting season.
State troopers plan another "Take Back Our Highways" program
for the week before Christmas.
