This weekend is Labor Day Weekend and people are ready to celebrate and enjoy their day off of work. During the weekend, people tend to celebrate, and sometimes can have a bit too much fun. State Trooper Sean Ramsey said Labor Day Weekend is one of the most celebrated weekends, and there tends to be a lot of DUI's. He asked the public, if they drink, to make sure they don't get behind the wheel.

Ramsey said over the past few months there have been a string of fatal accidents, where almost all of them involved the Fatal Four, which are distracted driving, driving under the influence, speeding, and not wearing a seat belt. Ramsey said state troopers can't stop this from happening alone, they need help from the public.
