RI Police Report Few Problems for Holiday Roads

Posted by Matthew Marin | Nov 28, 2010 | 0 Comments

PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Rhode Island state troopers are seeing few problems on Ocean State road as motorists hit the streets for the holidays.


State police reported few problems Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Police say the night before Thanksgiving is one of the biggest party nights of the year, and that makes it one of the deadliest nights on the roads.

Many troopers were assigned to a DUI enforcement detail to watch out for impaired drivers.

Trooper Franklin Navarro told WPRI-TV that most troopers were out looking for impaired drivers because the combination of people celebrating the holidays and high traffic made for dangerous roads.
