DPS: Remember to focus on safe holiday travel

Those who will be traveling for the long Thanksgiving holiday are encouraged by the Texas Department of Public Safety to focus on safe driving in order to save lives. DPS troopers, along with many other law enforcement officers, will be on patrol aiming to promote safe driving. In addition to not drinking and driving, the DPS also encourages drivers to eliminate distractions (including texting), buckle up everyone in the vehicle, slow down, drive defensively and don’t drive while fatigued.
