Three hundred and one speeding tickets, 18 DUIs and a partridge in a pear tree.
"The Twelve Days of Christmas" song would go something like that if you were using stats from the holiday weekend enforcement campaign by Connecticut State Police.
The campaign, which brings an increased patrol presence on the state's roadways in an effort to keep Connecticut's motorists safe, will continue through Jan. 1, 2014. So far, from midnight on Dec. 23 to noon on Dec. 26, Connecticut State Police have reported the following results:
