The Connecticut State Police would like to pass along some valuable advice for Labor Day Weekend.

Many of us are of the mindset that it will never happen to us. It could happen when you least expect it. You glance in your rearview mirror and you see those flashing police cruiser lights and all of a sudden you know you could be in big trouble.

According to the Connecticut State Police, this Labor Day Weekend, police cruisers will be out in force trying to keep you safe and alive. Starting at midnight on Friday, August 30 through 11:59 pm on Monday, September 2 extra Troopers will be out on patrol doing their best to keep Connecticut roads safe. As a courtesy to you, the Connecticut State Police have printed out a list of patrol locations and DUI checkpoints. Here's where they say they'll be:

If you are pulled over and are charged with a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) and it's your first offense, you could potentially get 6 months in prison and up to $1,000 in fines, not to mention expensive attorney fees and all the other associated costs to the DMV, DUI classes, etc.

You want to party over this holiday weekend? The solution is simple, spend the money and call a Lyft or an Uber.
