Expect to see more law officers on the highways for the next couple of weeks.

With spring breaks coming up, state troopers will step up patrols on highways like I-75. They'll be looking for intoxicated drivers and speeders.

The GSP says one of the biggest challenges they face right now is distracted drivers, especially people who are texting and driving.

"Texting while driving is illegal in our state but it continues to be a major contributing factor to our traffic crashes," said Capt. Chris Wright.  

Troopers ask that people drive safely, and don't speed.
