State Police to increase patrols for Fourth of July weekend

Virginia State Police will increase patrols during the Fourth of July holiday weekend, beginning July 3. VSP will join other law enforcement agencies throughout the nation to participate in Operation CARE (Combined Accident Reduction Effort), a state-sponsored, national program intended to reduce crashes, fatalities and injuries that result from impaired driving, speed and failure to wear a seat belt. The 2015 July Fourth statistical counting period begins at 12:01 a.m., July 3 and continues through midnight July 5.

“Last year, there were 11 deaths on Virginia’s roads due to a traffic crash during the July Fourth holiday weekend,” said Colonel W. Steven Flaherty, Virginia State Police Superintendent. “We will do our part to patrol and reduce the number of negligent drivers but motorists need to do theirs. Safe driving begins with each driver following the rules of the road – this includes never driving impaired and wearing your seatbelt.”
