CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire state police say they made nearly 4,000 motor vehicle stops in efforts to curb highway collisions and fatalities during the two weekends before Christmas.

State police say they issued 834 speeding citations and nearly 2,500 warnings during the two weekends, when they bulked up their public presence as part of what's known as C.A.R.E. Life Saver Weekends.

Police also made 58 arrests for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and issued 34 citations to drivers with suspended licenses.

State police Sgt. Matthew Shapiro says crackdown efforts will continue going into the New Year's holiday weekend.
