It’s travel time once again as the Fourth of July weekend is upon us. The State Highway Patrol and local police forces will be trying to keep travel safe. The Patrol’s Captain Chris Ricks says the safe driving focus is aimed at reducing last year’s crash numbers – 15 killed and 667 injured in 1,455 traffic crashes in Missouri. Ricks says the big travel days will be late Friday when people are heading to their destinations and on Monday when a lot of people will be heading home.
