Hull on Holiday Safety

With July Fourth falling on a Thursday this year many people may be making it a long holiday weekend and travel further than usual to vacation or visit family and friends.

Because of this... Missouri Highway Patrol troopers are on the roadways with Operation Care... placing a trooper every 20 miles on the major interstates and highways. They began the program Wednesday night and will continue through Sunday evening. Highway Patrol Captain Tim Hull urges people to get proper rest before beginning their trip home.
