RICHMOND, Va. – Motorists, who anticipate enjoying the extended time off from work by traveling around the Commonwealth during the holiday weekend, can expect to see an increase in Virginia State Police troopers on the road with them.
The additional patrols statewide are part of the annual Operation C.A.R.E., (Combined Accident Reduction Effort) to reduce crashes, fatalities and injuries associated with speed, failure to wear seatbelts and impaired driving.
The state-sponsored, national program encourages law enforcement agencies to increase its visibility and traffic enforcement efforts on major travel holidays.
As a result, state police will boost patrols around the Commonwealth beginning Friday morning, May 24, 2013, at 12:01 a.m. and continue through midnight, Monday, May 27, 2013.
