BRYAN COUNTY -- Troopers in Bryan County are gearing up for a busy weekend. Lieutenant Scott Hampton says all troopers will be on duty. 

Bryan County will also have support from OHP choppers and planes to make sure people are traveling at safe speeds. 

Troopers say not all accidents are caused by speeding. AAA projects about 41-million Americans will travel 50 miles or more while celebrating over the Independence Day holiday weekend.

"With the increase of people coming into town, obviously people want to relax and cut loose, and therein lies the problems of people getting out and being intoxicated and taking more risks than they normally would". 

AAA expects there to be about 15 percent more people on the highway this weekend than over the Memorial Day weekend.
