(KTVI)- Do you have plans to travel during this Labor Day weekend? If so, be prepared to see an increase in police patrols and sobriety checkpoints across various parts of Missouri.

The change is a part of the nationwide campaign, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”

Police also plan to crack down on seat belt violations and speeding.

According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 10,000 people die on the road due to drunk driving every year. In an effort to end this epidemic, law enforcement officials in every state, along with most U.S. cities and towns, will be cracking down on drunk driving between August 15th and Labor Day.
