Record Breaking Holiday Travel Weekend Underway; ISP Patrols Increased

Fri, Jun 30, 2017 at 11:54 AM

From Friday evening, June 30, through Tuesday July 4th, the Indiana State Police will be out in full force working Project CARE, stopping vehicles for impaired driving, aggressive driving, speeding, reckless driving, child restraint and seat belt non-compliance by aggressively targeting those who put lives in danger. Expect to see increased patrols, roving patrols and saturation patrols. These enforcement efforts are vital to public safety, and save lives.

While traveling this holiday season in Indiana, be sure to leave early enough to allow for slowdowns on the roadways, construction zones and vehicle breakdowns. Get plenty of rest before traveling long distances and have snacks and a charged cell phone available if needed. If you have too much to drink, stay where you are at or have someone else drive you home. A good rule of thumb is if someone asks you if you are able to drive, take that as your warning and do what is right! A night on a couch is more comfortable than a night in jail and is less costly in the long run than a hotel room!

To report an impaired driver, aggressive driving or road rage, call 911, sheriff’s department, local police or the state police post. Never follow an impaired driver. Give vehicle description, license plate number and state and direction of travel on the roadway they are on.

INDOT pulls back road closures, reminds motorists to drive safely

The Independence Day holiday weekend is expected to be one of the busiest on Indiana highways and interstates ever. The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) reminds Hoosiers to travel safely and plan for more driving time during this very busy weekend.

INDOT announces a road work moratorium for the Independence Day weekend beginning Friday afternoon, June 30 until the morning hours of Wednesday, July 5. Wherever possible, road restrictions will be removed to ease traffic flow for the influx of holiday drivers. Some closures and restrictions will remain on larger projects that cannot safely reopen to traffic. INDOT directs contractors to pull back barriers and barricades where possible to accommodate the anticipated increase in holiday travel. Here’s where you will see restrictions remaining over the holiday weekend in the Indiana State Police Lafayette Post area.
