State troopers are planning to crack down on unsafe driving during the busy holiday weekend.
AAA estimates that 50 million Americans will travel, a number that surpasses pre-pandemic levels.
Authorities say state troopers will be focused on speeding, unbuckled and distracted drivers.
Troopers are going to conduct roving DUI patrols across the state.
Authorities advise the public to call 911 if an erratic driver appears. They also remind drivers to look out for first responders, tow truck operators and construction crews working on the side of the road.
Some travelers attempting to beat traffic Friday morning were met with major delays due to a crash on I-95 in Greenwich.
"Very terrible. They closed the highway, so I had to divert. Went on the side roads and all that,” said a driver.
Traffic cleared up quickly once that stretch of I-95 was reopened, according to drivers.
