(SitNews) - The Alaska State Troopers will be out conducting enforcement efforts to ensure the safety of Alaskans while they celebrate Halloween this weekend. Local law enforcement agencies will also participate in the enhanced enforcement efforts from October 25th to November 1st.

The ramped up enforcement conducted by the Alaska State Troopers over the holiday will mostly be focused on DUI enforcement for both alcohol and drugs.

Regardless of what your ultimate plans are for Halloween, Troopers encourage you to always practice safe driving behaviors on the roads while traveling to and from your destination. If you consume drugs or alcohol, plan to either stay the night or to have a sober driver take you home. Always have a plan to get home safely.

Troopers also encourage everyone to Report Every Dangerous Driver Immediately by calling 9-1-1.

Funding for the focused enforcement is coordinated through the Alaska Office of Highway Safety.
