Police across the state are teaming up to cut down on traffic violations this holiday weekend. Last year more than 9-thousand summons for traffic related violations were issued over Labor Day Weekend. 15 people were killed in auto accidents and more than 100 arrests were made for driving under the influence. Police say those numbers are too high, which is why they're keeping 75 percent of their manpower on the interstates through today.
