The State Police Are Watching You This Week

State trooperIf you have a lead foot on the gas pedal, be careful because Alabama State Troopers will be targeting speeders all this week.

It’s all a part of Operation Southern Shield, a campaign that will be targeting speeders, along with distracted driving, (texting), impaired driving, and enforcement of seat belt usage. Alabama is just one of 5 southern states that will be participating in Operation Southern Shield, (Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and Tennessee are the others). So, if you’re headed out of state to buy some lottery tickets, it might be a good idea to pay attention to other State Troopers patrolling the interstate highways as well.

According to The ADECA, (Alabama Department Of Economic And Community Affairs), Speed is the Number One cause of driving fatalities in Alabama. The agency reports that in 2015, speed was determined to be a factor in 28 percent of all the fatal crashes. In addition, in those 2015 speed-related traffic deaths, 63 percent of the victims were not wearing seat belts, and 43 percent of the drivers had been drinking.  ADECA Director Kenneth Boswell said in a press release. “Gov. Ivey and ADECA wholeheartedly endorse this effort and urge drivers to at all times to slow down, wear your seatbelts and pay attention to the road”.

This Law Enforcement program begins Tomorrow, (Monday July 17) and will last through Next Sunday, (July 23).
