Memorial Day weekend is known for being an opportunity to make road trips which means more traffic than usual. Sheriff Larry Blanton reminds us that also means more patrol cars on the road, but he adds the main goal is always public safety: “The Sheriffs Office and other law enforcement will have extra patrols out this weekend reminding people to drive safely and you know the motto at the Sheriffs Office is: “If you see a patrol car and it reminds you to slow down, fasten your seat belt or hang up the cell phone, mission accomplished. We’ve all made mistakes driving, it's important that somebody is around you watching out for you as well. " Blanton says Memorial Day weekend is historically one of the most dangerous times to drive. And suggests you focus on safe and defensive driving if you need to out there on the roads for the holiday weekend.
