If you're driving this long Christmas holiday weekend take care on the highways.

DPS patrol officers are working around the clock to make sure the roads are safe.

Friday, they kicked off "Operation Holiday".  It means increased patrols looking for drunk and unsafe drivers.

Operation Holiday runs through January first.
