• State police warn drivers not to stop on interstates to view fireworks

    July 01, 2011 No comments

    The city of Indianapolis delivers one of the best Fourth of July fireworks displays and every year there is a significant problem with people stopping on the interstate to watch. The areas of most concern are I-65 between the south split and Keystone Avenue and I-70 between Harding Street and the south split.

    Indiana State Police troopers will be patrolling these areas during the fireworks show to discourage motorists from stopping on the interstate to watch the fireworks show. Motorists are reminded that Indiana law prohibits stopping, standing or parking on any part of the interstate or its ramps. A person found to be in violation of these laws could be issued a traffic citation.

    A motorist stopped on the interstate watching the fireworks could possibly be struck by another traveling motorist whose attention is also drawn to the fireworks.

    The Indiana State Police would like this to be a safe holiday weekend. Please help us by watching the fireworks show from a safe location and not the interstate.
