Memorial Day enforcement period starts Friday for MHP

With Memorial Day Weekend upon us, you can expect more traffic along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and more state troopers as well.

Mississippi Highway Patrol is kicking off its Memorial Day enforcement period beginning at midnight and running through Monday night.

Trooper Cal Robertson says to beware of the fatal four: speeding, not wearing your seatbelt, distracted driving, and impaired driving. “We do expect still to see a lot of travelers on the roadways, so we will increase our numbers of troopers, and it is also click it or ticket during this weekend so we will be focusing on seatbelts as well.”

Robertson says weather shouldn’t be a factor for drivers over the holiday weekend.
