State Police have issued more than 160 tickets since their steeped-up Labor Day enforcement patrols began at midnight Friday.
In a Saturday afternoon report, state police said they have issued 120 hazardous moving violations to drivers for unsafe lane changes, following too closely, and failure to move over for emergency vehicles.
Troopers also have issued 45 speeding tickets, made eight DUI arrests and caught four people for allegedly not wearing a seat belt.
State police have received 2,054 calls for service, assisted 59 motorists and responded to 111 accidents, none of which results in any serious injury or fatality.
This weekend troopers also will be conducting increased “roving DUI patrols.”
The increased enforcement will continue until 11:59 p.m. Monday.
“Even with COVID-19 restrictions, we expect traffic to be heavy during the three-day holiday weekend. We ask all drivers to remember that arriving at their destination safely should be their No. 1 priority,” Col. Stavros Mellekas, commanding officer of the state police, said in a statement.
“We strongly encourage all drivers to plan for plenty of time to drive, expect traffic delays and proceed with caution. Obeying the rules of the road is everyone’s responsibility.”
Last Labor Day weekend, 683 speeding tickets were issued, 46 people were arrested for DUI and there were 424 accidents with 51 injuries and one fatality.
