With the holiday just around the corner, many people will be hitting the roads this weekend.
Memorial day means the start of the "100 deadliest days" on the road.
On your side spoke with ISP today about what drivers can do to keep themselves and others safe.
ISP said the best thing you can do as a driver is to be as defensive as you can.
Watch the vehicles around you, increase your following distance, be prepared for increase traffic levels, and always wear a seatbelt.
This weekend the Treasure Valley DUI task force are ramping up their effort to keep impaired drivers on the road.
If you are on the roadway and see someone who may be impaired you can always call *ISP and let them know.
