If you’re out on the roads in Michigan Labor Day weekend, be aware that you’ll likely be seeing more of a police presence than usual.

The Michigan State Police will be joining in with law enforcement agencies across the country for a traffic safety initiative called Operation C.A.R.E. (Crash Awareness and Reduction Efforts.) In conjunction with Operation C.A.R.E., troopers across the state, along with approximately 150 other law enforcement agencies in Michigan, will be participating in the national safety campaign ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.’

Police will be taking a zero tolerance policy toward those driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They will also be on the lookout for distracted drivers, and those not wearing seat belts.

Labor Day weekend officially began at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, September 1, and will end at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, September 4. According to a release from the Michigan State Police, 10 fatal traffic accents resulted in 10 deaths during the Labor Day holiday weekend in 2016.
