With holiday weekends come increased traffic and in turn, increased police presence on Virginia highways. Virginia State Police will be increasing patrol this Memorial Day weekend as part of their participation in Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort). The operation is a state-sponsored, national program designed to reduce accidents caused by speeding, DUI, and failure to use seat belts.
May 28, 2010 - The enforcement will be most heavily in effect from Friday, May 28th until midnight, Monday, May 31st, 2010. Expect to see more police presence, speed traps, DUI checkpoints and other traffic safety measures this Memorial Day weekend. This increased patrol also comes along the start of the enhanced Click It or Ticket program running May 24th through June 6th, 2010. Click It seeks to increase proper use of safety restraints by drivers and their passengers, especially children.
You should take caution when traveling on Virginia roads during the Memorial Day weekend. Many visitors come from out of state for celebrations and highway traffic will be especially heavy. At times like these, law enforcement is especially vigilant when looking for drivers under the influence, reckless drivers, and anyone not using proper safety restraints.
