Police Conducting Extra '4th Of July' Patrols

Last updated on Friday, July 2, 2010

(UNDATED) - Indiana State Police are reminding all motorists to do their part in making our highways safe during the 4th of July weekend.

Last year, two people were killed on Indiana roadways during the holiday; one of those fatal crashes was alcohol-related.

State police will be participating in operation C.A.R.E. and approximately 150 additional troopers to patrol state highways.

Troopers will be targeting impaired drivers, motorists who speed, follow too closely, make unsafe lane changes, drive aggressively and fail to buckle up.

1340 AM WBIW welcomes comments and suggestions by calling 812.277.1340 during normal business hours or by email at comments@wbiw.com
