State Police say one holiday tradition they'd like to see broken is the high number of traffic fatalities over the Christmas holidays.
LSP Captain Doug Cain says it's tough on families, and on law officers.
"There's something about knocking on a door during the Christmas season when a trooper has to do a death notification," says Cain. "It just breaks your heart, as a law enforcement officer."
Cain says they'll have no-refusal sobriety checkpoints, where judges will be standing by to issue court orders to collect blood samples from those who refuse a breathalyzer.
He adds they'll also be cracking down on distracted driving.
"There's so much going on. Families are running from this house to that house and kids are excited. So we want people to remember, when they're in their vehicle, when they're driving down the road, let's keep that focus on the road."
He says they're trying to stop a month long trend in the state.
"We're not even at Christmas yet, and we've had over one person killed a day," Cain says. "That's hard to swallow as a law enforcement officer, as public safety official...realizing that fatalities don't only hurt that person and their families...but they hurt extended family. They hurt friends. They hurt communities as a whole."
