ALEA Increases Patrols
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency is gearing up for the seasonal hustle and bustle between now and New Year’s, ALEA expects the state’s roadways to be much busier than usual and is increasing its patrols to help protect lives and promote highway safety. Secretary of Law Enforcement Spencer Collier says the 2015 Christmas-New Year’s holiday travel period begins at 12:01 a.m. December 18th , and ends at midnight January 1st during which Alabama State Troopers will work with their law enforcement partners across the state to promote safety. One of the easiest ways to ensure roadways and waterways are safe is to avoid driving while under the influence. It also is important to buckle up every time – no matter how short the trip.
