Keeping our roadways safe this New Year’s

Chicot Memorial

The Mississippi Highway Patrol investigated 250- wrecks over the Christmas holidays with 5- fatalities and 81- injuries. They are only half way through this busy season and will once again increase patrols during the New Year’s weekend. Troopers will get busy themselves starting tomorrow afternoon at 6 through midnight Friday conducting safety checkpoints. The plan as always is to remove impaired drivers from the roadway. Last year during this time period they investigated 70- wrecks, 2- fatalities and numerous injuries. A designated driver is a good idea even on Saturday and Sunday as Troopers will still be on patrol.
