State police are getting ready to launch a holiday blitz on the roads.
The State Police Traffic Services Unit will increase patrols in Middlesex County on St. Patrick's Day (Saturday), including a crackdown on drivers along the I-91 and I-95 corridors.
According to Troop F Sgt. Sal Calvo, police will target:
- drunk drivers
- aggressive drivers
- distracted drivers
- drivers not wearing seatbelts
"It's a very festive day but don't drive if you're planning to drink," Calvo said.
The patrols will begin Saturday afternoon and continue through the early hours of Sunday morning.
