'Operation CARE' to thwart drunk drivers over holiday weekend

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Missouri Highway Patrol is one of many agencies stepping-up patrol for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

This one in particular is called "Operation Care."

In this case, "CARE" stands for "Combined-Accident-Reduction-Effort."

Troopers will be patrolling 20 mile stretches along Interstate 55, looking for speeders, people who don't buckle up, and especially drunk drivers.
