State Police Start Summer Patrols
Indiana State Police say that summer patrols get underway with Memorial Day weekend, as “The Unofficial Start to Summer is Here.”
ISP says it is participating in “Operation CARE” as an accident-reduction effort along with a statewide driving-under-the-influence project. Troopers specifically will watch for drivers who speed, follow too closely, make unsafe lane changes and fail to buckle up or to properly restrain children. ISP says its troopers will also be looking for impaired drivers.
Indiana State Police also are enforcing the “Click it or Ticket” campaign through June 2nd, which includes more than 250 local law enforcement agencies throughout Indiana.
ISP says these efforts help ensure the safety of all motorists during the Memorial Day weekend and other summer travel.
In that effort, Indiana State Police troopers and motor carrier inspectors will work extra hours to also ensure commercial motor vehicles are operating safely.
Indiana State Police encourage drivers to be rested before traveling, to avoid tailgating, to obey speed limits, to use turn signals, to make sure everyone is properly buckled up and to never drink and drive.
