The Mississippi Highway Patrol is working to ensure that you arrive safely into the new year. 

As a continuation of their “Home for The Holidays” safety initiative, the MHP will begin its New Year’s Enforcement Period on Tuesday, December 31 at 12:01 a.m. Much like they were during the Christmas Enforcement Period, all available troopers will be used to combat speeding, distracted driving and drunk driving on Mississippi highways.

“If plans include alcohol, please designate a sober driver before festivities start. No one should begin 2020 with being arrested, facing medical bills, legal fees, and perhaps losing their job. Responsible decisions ensure safe travel and allows everyone to enjoy time spent with family and friends,” the MHP said.

The New Year’s Enforcement Period will end on Wednesday at midnight.

During the 2018 New Year’s period, the MHP investigated 92 vehicle crashes including 5 fatalities on state, federal highways, and interstate systems.
