Police remind motorists to drive defensively.
LEWISTON, ID - Patrol officers will be paying extra attention to interstate highways for the holiday weekend.

Leaders from Washington State Patrol want to remind drivers of a couple safety tips you should be thinking about before and while traveling.

"One of the best tips is to allow yourself extra travel time to get to your destination and don't be in a hurry to drive defensively," said WSP Sergeant Dave DeVere. "We are basically asking the general public to basically take your time to reach your destination safely and have a great, fun holiday weekend."

It's also a good idea to check your oil, and make sure everything's good under the hood before you take off.
