The Labor Day weekend is quickly approaching and the California Highway Patrol says it's one of the busiest times on highways. Don't be surprised if you see extra police cars on the roads.

CHP is going to be out in full force this holiday weekend to make sure people are not driving while under the influence. CHP along with five other states will be taking part in the No Safe Place for Impaired Drivers to crack down on drunk and drugged driving for the coming holiday weekend.

It will be a maximum enforcement period of officers starting this Friday at 6 p.m. until Monday night at midnight.

The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control will also have additional agents out working to keep the public safe through enforcement of alcoholic beverage laws on Labor Day weekend.

ABC Agents will visit ABC licensed businesses, to check on compliance with current health orders, and to reduce alcohol service to obviously intoxicated patrons and persons under 21 years old.
