The department says it will have the largest "Operation CARE" program to date from Wednesday through Sunday. "CARE" is a national program that stands for "Combined Accident Reduction Effort."

Traffic enforcement patrols will be increased across Michigan with a focus on drunk drivers, careless driving, speeding, and people who aren't wearing seat belts.
