Indiana State Police are warning drivers about traffic this holiday weekend.
With lower gas prices and the Indy 500, the roads are sure to be crowded.
We met up with state police for tips on staying safe.
Memorial Day weekend traditionally starts off the summer travel season, but Indiana State Police are stressing for drivers to be patient and cautious this holiday.
Law enforcement throughout the state will be participating in Click it or Ticket and Operation CARE to help keep the roadways safe.
But they say safety starts with you.
“We want you to pay attention at all times, stay off your cell phone, slow down, use caution,” said Indiana State Police, Sgt. Joe Watts.
Which means buckling up, and reporting impaired drivers to police.
“Nothing is better when it comes to traffic safety than you looking down range on your driving, obeying the speed limit, buckling up, driving sober, and just being patient,” said Stg. Watts.
Law enforcement expects a high volume of traffic, and watch out if you’re not obeying the rules of the road.
There will be saturation patrols in high traffic areas throughout the Wabash Valley.
