TALLAHASSEE 11/23/2011 -- Troopers say they will be targeting impaired drivers and speeders starting Wednesday and continuing through Sunday. They will also be watching drivers who follow too closely and other aggressive driving behaviors.

FHP Director David Brierton urges people to drive safely and to make sure they use seat belts.

Brierton says people should make sure they get plenty of rest before hitting the road. And they should avoid distractions such as texting, talking on the phone and eating. It's also important to have your vehicle checked for proper fluid levels and adequate tire pressure.

Call (asterisk)FHP -- or (asterisk)347 -- to report aggressive drivers or if you need assistance along the highway.
