TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Florida Highway Patrol will be stepping up their enforcement efforts over the 4th of July holiday.

All uniformed FHP personnel, even those normally assigned to administrative duties, will be out patrolling interstates and other state roads during the holiday period.  The holiday period starts this evening and ends 8 a.m. July 5th.

"The Florida Highway Patrol is committed to making the highways a safer place to drive, by intensifying our patrol efforts to reduce the number of crashes," said FHP Director, Col. David Brierton.  "Our troopers will be on the roadways taking appropriate enforcement action to ensure public safety for Florida motorists during the holiday travel period."

If you have trouble on the highway or need assistance, the FHP asks motorists to call *FHP (*347) on your cellphone.  You may also call the FHP number, or other local law enforcement officials to report an impaired, aggressive or dangerous driver.  If you do call you may remain anonymous.
