Kentucky State Police officers will be out in force to crack down on drunken driving during this coming Labor Day weekend.
State police say patrols will be increased during the holiday period running from Friday evening through Monday night.
Last year, state police say there were six alcohol-related highway deaths in Kentucky during the Labor Day holiday.
Across the state, law enforcement officers arrested 55 people for DUI during the same period.
In addition to statewide DUI enforcement, state police will conduct traffic safety checkpoints in an effort to enforce all traffic laws. State police say special attention will be given to seat belt use, vehicle safety, insurance compliance and registration violations.
