DPS Pleased With Traffic Over 4th Of July Holiday

The 4th of July weekend was also one of the busiest travel holidays of the year.

Still, DPS Corporal John Gonzalez says, most drivers played it safe. He says that makes the job of a trooper, so much easier.

"We're blessed that we didn't have any of the fatalities and no injuries as the result of some of the minor crashes around. Officers love that when we don't have to go up to someone's house at 3 a.m. to wake them and tell them the bad news," said Corporal Gonzalez.

Gonzalez also says that overall, speeding was down, seat belt use was up and that makes the streets safer for everyone.
