TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- In March of 2016, there were 35-thousand crashes, 48 ending with fatalities.

Troopers say they will be patrolling the roadways for potential DUI's and distracted driving.

"Take responsibility. Call a ride service, get a designated driver. Remember the age limit to drink legally is 21 years old and if you're in possession of alcohol in the vehicle, whether you're the driver or passenger, you can be cited for that,” said Captain Jeffrey Bissainthe, FHP Chief of Public Affairs.

Troopers also encourage all drivers to register their emergency contact information. Authorities can scan your license and contact your loved ones if you're ever involved in a crash.
