More Columbia police on road for holiday weekend

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - While many plan on celebrating the reveal of 2011, the Columbia Police Department wants to make sure you get to and from your destinations safely during the upcoming holiday weekend.

That's why it's increasing its patrols throughout the city. Chief Randy Scott said officers will be zoning in on all traffic violations, including speeding, seatbelt violations, and driving while under the influence.

If you do make the choice to drink to bring in the new year, Chief Scott asks that you either have someone take you home or use a cab service.
