(Harrisburg) -- State Police will be on the lookout for dangerous driving this weekend as some Pennsylvanians get a head start on their holiday traveling.
Spokesman Adam Reed says some extra patrols will be on the roadways as part of Operation Safe Holiday, an initiative designed to help curb aggressive driving in the state.
Reed adds police will watch out for tailgating, speeding, and erratic lane changing, in addition to drunk drivers.
He says drivers should also plan for the possibility of inclement weather. "Getting ready to travel for Christmas and New Year's here, the threat of some winter weather, I know, may be in the picture this year, so it adds a little additional element. You really have to take your time and prepare for there to be traffic, and, quite possibly, prepare that the roads won't be in ideal conditions."
Reed says drivers should also be well-rested before embarking on long trips.
Operation Safe Holiday is set to end December 31st.
