Police across Kansas are beefing up traffic patrols in anticipation of the coming Labor Day holiday. Three people die on Kansas roads every day in connection with drunk driving. A statewide effort is already underway to crack-down on DUI offenders. Johnson County Sheriff's Deputy Tom Erickson says DUI checkpoints will begin this week.
Johnson County also promises increased enforcement of the state's seatbelt law. Authorities urge drivers to stay sober and patient as they drive around the state in these remaining weeks of summer... and all year long.
