The Texas Department of Public Safety stopped more than 100 vehicles in Lavaca County during a traffic enforcement task force July 28-30.

DPS Troopers made 117 traffic stops and issued 118 citations and warnings.

Their efforts also resulted in two driving while intoxicated arrests and one drug arrest.

In addition to enforcing traffic and criminal laws, troopers also assisted a motorist who needed help, according to a news release from the DPS.

No crashes were reported over the three-day enforcement.

"I'm extremely pleased with the hard work of our troopers over the weekend," said Freeman Martin, DPS regional commander. "Their efforts had a direct impact on keeping Texans safe."
