DPS troopers are reminding travelers to be safe as they head out for the holiday weekend.
State troopers will be out in force until New Year's Day.
Corporal John Gonzalez says the biggest thing they will be looking for is drivers who are drinking and driving.
Last year between Christmas and New Year's, he says over one thousand people were arrested for that offense.
So, if you plan on going some place where you'll be drinking, DPS reminds you to please make smart decisions before getting on the road.
"Designated driver, take a taxi home or stay where you're at. Find somebody that hasn't been drinking to come get you. But don't get behind the wheel," Gonzalez said.
If you're driving through icy roads, slow down and take your time, Gonzalez said.
