HARRISONBURG, Va.--- Law enforcement in the area expected a large crowd and a lot of traffic to handle at the first James Madison University opening football game.

JMU police, Harrisonburg police, Virginia State Police and Rockingham County Sheriff's Office worked to keep you safe during game day.

According to Virginia State Police first sergeant Frank Pyanoe, VSP handled the traffic, security and crowd control in the stadium and around campus.

He said usually heavy traffic can lead to minor fender benders. To avoid that you should try to get to the game early and be responsible after the game.

"When leaving the game, drive responsibly, be patient for the traffic to let out, drive drug and alcohol free and drive distraction free," said Pyanoe.

He also recommends not being distracted while driving.

VSP is always in the lookout for impaired, distracted and aggressive driving. This holiday weekend, there will be more troopers on the roads enforcing safe driving.
