DPS increases Memorial Day traffic enforcement

AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety is encouraging Texas motorists to heed driver safety tips and prepare for enhanced Memorial Day enforcement efforts — including the annual “Click It or Ticket” and “Operation Crash Awareness Reduction Effort” (CARE) campaigns — through Memorial Day, May 27.

Click It or Ticket is an enforcement campaign that encourages people to wear their seat belts. Operation CARE is a specialized campaign in which Texas Highway Patrol Troopers look for drivers who are speeding, intoxicated, not complying with Texas’ “Move Over, Slow Down” law or violating other laws.

“Memorial Day weekend is commonly recognized as the unofficial kickoff to summer, and it is important for drivers to remember that our roads will be busier than usual,” said Steven McCraw, DPS director.
