Police emphasize safe driving on holiday weekend

Indiana State Police say they will be out in force during the Memorial Day weekend and taking part in nationwide efforts to look for drivers who speed, follow too closely, make unsafe lane changes and fail to buckle up or to properly restrain children.

Police say troopers also will be aggressively looking for impaired drivers.

State police say they are taking part in the "Operation CARE", which stands for combined accident reduction effort, and the Statewide Driving Under the Influence Project. Troopers also will be participating in the "Click it or Ticket" enforcement campaign through June 2nd. The campaign will include not only the Indiana State Police, but more than 250 local law enforcement agencies throughout the state.

Additionally, troopers and motor carrier inspectors will work extra hours to ensure commercial motor vehicles are operating safely. Their efforts will concentrate on enforcing traffic, logbook, size, weight and mechanical violations as well as illegal interstate parking.
