The Florida Highway Patrol will be out in full force during the Independence Day holiday travel period, extending through 8 a.m. Thursday, FHP officials said.
All uniformed FHP personnel, including those normally assigned to administrative duties, will patrol interstates and other major state roads throughout the holiday period. The strategy aims to increase the The FHP’s presence throughout Florida in an effort to deter traffic violations and reduce crashes, and enhance services to motorists who break down while traveling or who need other assistance. The Patrol encourages motorists who experience car trouble on the highway or who otherwise need assistance from the FHP to dial *FHP (*347) from your cellphone. FHP urges motorists to contact FHP or local law enforcement officials to report an impaired, aggressive or dangerous driver. Callers may remain anonymous.
