ISP to begin drunk driving crackdown Friday | News
Beginning this Friday, Indiana State Police at the Evansville District will join more than 250 other Indiana law enforcement agencies across the Hoosier state in the “Drunk Driving – Over the Limit – Under Arrest” March crackdown on impaired and dangerous drivers.
Through March 18, troopers will work overtime to conduct high-visibility enforcement activities designed specifically to identify impaired drivers. Motorists will also see an increased number of patrols looking for aggressive drivers and unrestrained motorists during the 17-day enforcement period.
In March 2010, there were 50 highway fatalities on Indiana roadways. A legally intoxicated driver was involved in 28% of those highway fatalities. According to the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, alcoholic beverages continue to be assigned as the primary factor in more than one-third of alcohol related collisions in the state of Indiana.
Operation Pull Over is a statewide enforcement effort supported by federal funding allocated to the Indiana State Police from the Traffic Safety division of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute. To learn more visit www.StopImpairedDriving.org.
