This weekend is the first weekend of November, and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol is warning drivers they will be out and enforcing the laws. OHP tells FOX23 they will be looking for intoxicated drivers along the highways. They also told us there are some telltale signs.
Capt. George Brown tells FOX23 the signs of an impaired motorist. These include "weaving, distracted, driving on the shoulder, or even going too slow or fast on the roadways."
Capt. George Brown says they will be on the lookout for anyone who will risk the safety of other drivers.
"We want to stop any dangerous driving that can cause harm or has the potential to cause harm on other drivers," Brown said.
With so many deadly accidents caused by reckless driving, OHP feels they are headed in the right direction by having a set up like this and people agree.
FOX23 spoke with Kayla Rippy. She is enjoying her weekend but still agrees with OHP’s crackdown.
"I think its an awesome idea, there are a lot of drunk drivers, there are a lot of people who get away with it."
"Brown is confident that tonight they will have no deadly accidents." Marcua Shey, an OHP Trooper, said. "We want to have zero injury crashes tonight. On this night we will save lives."
OHP is giving the fair warning to all drivers to be a defensive driver and avoid anyone you think is driving intoxicated. You can always call the Oklahoma Highway Patrol at 1-405-425-2424 if you see a driver that could be dangerous to others.
