PORT ARANSAS, Texas—A popular beach community in Texas has changed some traffic patterns to keep roadways safer and help accommodate spring breakers.

Patrols were increased this weekend at Port Aransas (uh-RAN'-suhs).

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times ( http://bit.ly/OhLXo7) reports Texas troopers, state game wardens and agents with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission have been assisting Port Aransas police.

Officers have implemented an updated traffic plan, installed new barrels on the beach to split parking from beach traffic lanes and get additional public safety briefings.

Port Aransas police last year issued 125 tickets during spring break. Chief Scott Burroughs says more than 450 tickets were issued by all public safety officials during the 2013 spring break period.
