COL. WALP URGES HOLIDAY MOTORISTS TO DRIVE SAFELY

 COL. WALP URGES HOLIDAY MOTORISTS TO DRIVE SAFELY
 HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Announcing that additional


troopers will be patrolling Pennsylvania highways, Col. Glenn A. Walp, State Police Commissioner, today urged motorists to buckle up and drive safely during the upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend.
 Labor Day is one of the most traveled holidays of the year," Walp said. "Regrettably, the increased traffic on our highways carries with it the ominous pattern of increased accidents, injury and death.
 "Again this year, federal highway safety program funds have enabled us to put extra troopers on the road during the Labor Day holiday. These officers will be aggressively enforcing Pennsylvania's drunk driving, speed limit and seat belt laws."
 Last year, 24 people lost their lives on Pennsylvania highways and another 1,204 were injured over the Labor Day holiday (Aug. 30-Sept. 2, 1991).
 Walp said motorists can guard against accidents by buckling their seat belts, driving defensively, taking their time, staying within the speed limit and not drinking and driving.
 The official holiday period begins at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4, and ends at midnight Monday, Sept. 7.
