Florida Highway Patrols Beefs Up Patrols Over Holiday Period


One positive of the pandemic, holiday travel is expected to be a lot less deadly this year. Thanks to COVID-19, fewer people are driving over the river and through the woods to grandma's this Thanksgiving. While that's a plus----fewer cars on the roadways means more people can press the pedal to the metal. Florida Highway Patrol Major Robert Chandler says they're out in full force from today until Sunday looking for speeders, impaired drivers and anyone not wearing a seatbelt. He says some people mistakenly think they can't be pulled over in a pandemic, he says rest assured those rumors are completely false.
