THP Gears Up for Cinco De Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is this Saturday and officials with the Tennessee Highway Patrol are reminding partiers to celebrate smart. Colonel Tracey Trott with the T-H-P says, as usual, they are stepping up patrols.
Trott says the best way to make sure everyone stays safe is to designate a driver before the night begins.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be out in full force looking for drivers who’ve had a little too much. Colonel Trott says if you know you’re going to be drinking, you need to arrange for transportation before you get there..
The T-H-P will be conducting bar checks, saturation patrols and driver license and sobriety checkpoints in an effort to reduce alcohol-related fatalities and serious injury crashes this weekend.
