Texas troopers watching for DWIs

The D-P-S "Operation Holiday" effort begins tomorrow and runs through Monday in an effort to reduce traffic fatalities.
All available troopers will be on patrol.
Officers will be watching for drunken drivers, people who are speeding and travelers not wearing seat belts.
Troopers during the Christmas 2004 weekend made 340 D-W-I arrests.

D-P-S says nearly eleven-thousand speed tickets were issued during that period, while almost 12-hundred citations were written for seat belt violations.
