Many drivers will hit the roads today for the start of Memorial Day weekend.
AAA predicts more than a million Virginians will be traveling over the next three days.
With all of the extra people on the roads, local and state police in our area will be watching the roads very closely.
One place where you'll see a lot of police is on Route 460.
From 5pm to 10pm tonight, Roanoke City Police will be working together with thirteen other departments through out the state to do what's called a "460 Blitz".
They'll have extra officers out looking for speeding, signs of drinking and driving, and seat belt use.
State police in the Roanoke Valley will also have a large number of troopers watching the roads over the next three days.
Troopers will focus in large part on I-81.
If you're traveling beyond our region, you'll see more police everywhere in Virginia this weekend.
Multiple campaigns like Click It or Ticket are going on right now, which has police statewide working together to increase their presence.
