And, the Ohio State Highway Patrol says it will continue to target enforcement in areas where it has seen traffic problems as state troopers will be out in full force. The patrol says 13 people died in fatal accidents on Ohio over the Labor Day holiday weekend last year. Labor Day began in 1894 as a day for America to honor its work force and for many people, it also offers the chance for cookouts and gatherinigs to celebrate the last of the three major holidays of summer.
