Alabama State Troopers to Expand Patrols

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama state troopers says motorists
can expect extra patrols and sobriety checkpoints statewide during
the New Year's holiday weekend.

The 102-hour travel period begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday and run through midnight Sunday, Jan. 4.

Public Safety Director Christopher Murphy said troopers will focus on curtailing impaired driving.

Alabama had 11 traffic deaths during the 102-hour New Year's holiday weekend last year, and alcohol was a factor in at least four of them.
