• ISP to participate in Operation C.A.R.E.

    July 01, 2011 No comments

    The Indiana State Police would like to remind all motorists to do their part in making our highways safe during this upcoming holiday.

     

    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). Operation C.A.R.E. is a federally funded program and will allow approximately 150 additional troopers to patrol area roadways during this upcoming holiday. Troopers extra patrols 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.

     

    During this July 4th travel period, motorists are reminded of two important issues: Indiana’s new law that prevents drivers from texting/e-mailing while driving begins on July 1st and two Interstate 70 highway construction projects near Terre Haute are underway and present various challenges to drivers.

     

    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.

    • Use extra caution when approaching and traveling through construction zones.

    • Obey all speed limits and always use your turn signals.

    • Never drink and drive.

    • Make sure everyone is buckled up.

    • Do not text and drive

     

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