Florida Highway Patrol says they will be conducting a DUI Wolfpack Operation on Thanksgiving night and into the next morning in an attempt to keep impaired drivers off the road.

Starting at 8 pm on Thursday, FHP will hold the DUI operation until 4 am on Friday.

The Florida Highway Patrol organizes the operation to proactively remove impaired drivers from the roadways and ultimately enhance the safety of drivers on the road.

Troopers conducting the operation will be mobile while monitoring traffic to maximize their visibility and effectiveness in removing impaired drivers from the roadways.

The Wolfpack Operation will focus on Interstate 75 and major state and county roadways.

The Florida Highway Patrol says they would like to remind everyone that *FHP (*347) dialed from any cell phone contacts FHP should you need to report an aggressive driver or require roadside assistance.
