MONTGOMERY: Spring Break is all about relaxation and recreation, but the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) urges everyone to play it safe.
Between now and the end of April, Alabama motorists should expect busier roadways and waterways across the state as families and high school/college students head to the beach, lake or other warm-weather attraction for a little spring break fun.
Whatever the plans, ALEA will work to ensure public safety, with Alabama State Troopers enforcing state laws and assisting motorists and boaters.
“Spring break should be fun. We do, however, ask everyone to move safety to the top of the to-do list when planning road trips,” Secretary of Law Enforcement Stan Stabler said. “Parents, sit down with your children -- particularly those who will travel with friends -- and review Alabama’s traffic and boating laws. Remind them to buckle up, to obey speed limits, to avoid texting and other distractions while driving and to use life vests while boating.”
