CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va.- Safe driving is something we should all practice every day, every where we drive.

However, drivers in Chesterfield County should pay particularly close attention while behind the wheel starting next week. That is when Chesterfield Police will ramp up holiday traffic enforcement.

“Police will conduct holiday drunken driving patrols, checkpoints and red light enforcement operations throughout Chesterfield County beginning Monday, June 30, and continuing through the Fourth of July and the weekend,” police wrote in a statement.” Police will also target speeders, red light runners and seatbelt violators.”

The “heightened enforcement” runs Monday, June 30 thru Monday, July 7.
