GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Highway Patrol will begin the 2014 Christmas holiday enforcement period at 6 p.m. Tuesday and conclude at midnight Christmas night.

With the expected increase in holiday travel due to low fuel prices, The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1zZt4uf ) all available manpower will be used to establish checkpoints to prevent impaired driving and saturation patrols to combat distracted and reckless driving.

In 2013, MHP investigated four fatalities on state and federal highway systems during the holiday period. Motorists are asked to make responsible decisions that not only ensure safe travel, but also allows families to reach their intended destination.
