— The state Highway Patrol will be out in force this Easter weekend.

Troopers are looking for aggressive drivers, drunk drivers, drivers not wearing seat belts and people breaking the state's littering laws, the patrol said Thursday.

Last year, statewide, eight people died in more than 1,100 wrecks during the holiday weekend.

The Easter period ends Sunday at midnight.
