• Indiana State Police participate in Operation C.A.R.E. over 4th of July Holiday

    July 02, 2013 No comments

    To help ensure the safety of all motorists during this heavily traveled holiday, Indiana State Police will be participating in Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort) from July 3rd through July 7th. Operation C.A.R.E. is a federally funded program and will allow more than 100 additional troopers to patrol area roadways in an attempt to reduce the number of crashes, fatalities and injuries over the holiday weekend. Troopers will be targeting impaired drivers, motorists who speed, follow too closely, make unsafe lane changes, drive aggressively and fail to buckle up or properly restrain their children. Troopers also encourage motorists to stay off their cell phones while driving.

    The Indiana State Police encourage all motorists to observe the following safety tips: 
    • If you’re planning to travel a long distance, make sure you are well rested. A fatigued driver is a dangerous driver.
    • Avoid tailgating. Remember the two-second rule.
    • Obey all speed limits and always use your turn signals when turning and changing lanes.
    • Avoid using cell phones while driving. Distracted driving is dangerous driving.
    • Never drink and drive.
    • Make sure everyone is buckled up.

    The Indiana State Police would like everyone to remember that driving comes with important responsibilities to yourself, your passengers and other motorists.
