PINE BELT -

With New Year's Eve upon us, the Mississippi Highway Patrol wants us to remember to be safe before getting behind the wheel.

"The Highway Patrol is going to be out, we're going to be visible, troopers will be working to roads and if we run across a violation we are going to address it. Our main goal is everybody have fun and enjoy their self but yet let's be safe. We want everybody to return home," Trooper Brent Barfield said. "We want everybody to make good decisions and designate a driver and refrain from drinking and driving."

MHP will be looking for violations and speeding as well as drinking and being impaired behind the wheel of a vehicle. 

"We want people to understand how deadly it is and to please pay attention," Barfield said.
