AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is increasing DWI patrols Aug. 21 – Sept. 7, which includes the Labor Day holiday weekend. During this period, DPS troopers will focus DWI patrols in high-risk locations  at times when alcohol-related crashes are most frequent. “Impaired drivers who take to the roadways put other  travelers in harm’s way, and these increased patrols during the Labor Day holiday are designed  to save lives by getting these dangerous drivers off the road,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “The department  urges all drivers to do their part to keep our road and highways safe by obeying traffic laws and  not drinking and driving.”
