The Connecticut State Police have released the statistics for the Memorial Day Weekend, from midnight Thursday, May 27 through 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 30.
Police responded to 150 motor vehicle accidents, 24 with injuries.
No fatal accidents were reported during that time period.
Police also made 50 DUI arrests, issued 906 speeding tickets and 636 tickets for seat belt violations (i.e. failure to wear one).
State police are out in force throughout the Memorial Day Weekend. Drivers are asked to call 911 if they see what looks like drunken driving.
The idea is to minimize the tragedies that occur on holiday weekends.
