Virginia State Police Report on Weekend Patrols

August 25, 2010

The latest Virginia State Police crackdown on speeders and reckless drivers has resulted in more than 4,000 traffic violations.

State troopers tallied that impressive number over the weekend on Interstates 64 and 66. The safety campaign dubbed “Operation Air, Land & Sea” nabbed 2,157 speeders and 394 reckless drivers. Others were stopped for impaired driving, drug violations and safety belt citations.

The fifth weekend enforcement effort this year used troopers in cruisers, on motorcycles and in motor carrier teams.

State Police Superintendent W. Steven Flaherty says the saturation patrols are helping keep Virginia highways safer.
