INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Police in Indiana will be watching for dangerous drivers and seat belt violators during the holiday weekend.

Indiana State Police say law enforcement throughout the state will be participating in the Click it or Ticket Campaign and Operation CARE, or Combined Accident Reduction Effort. Troopers will be looking for aggressive drivers, impaired drivers, and those that don’t buckle up.

Police say this Memorial Day weekend is shaping up to be the busiest in the Indiana in years with lower fuel prices and a sold-out 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.

The Indianapolis Department of Transportation says motorists traveling through Indianapolis on Sunday should avoid race traffic on Interstate 465 and I-65 on the west side of Indianapolis.
