    Default Police Target Virginia Parkways

    FAIRFAX, Va. -- Motorists will notice increased police presence on the Fairfax County Parkway and the Franconia Springfield Parkway during the next two weeks.

    Officers from five district police stations and the motorcycle unit are participating in an Educational and Speed Enforcement Campaign for the two weeks ending Dec. 9, 2005.

    From January through October 2004, there were 690 reportable crashes on the two parkways. During the same time this year, there have been 782 reportable crashes.

    The intent of the campaign is to stop bad driving behavior, especially speeding, and driving recklessly or aggressively.

    The participating stations will include the Franconia, West Springfield, Fair Oaks, Sully and Reston police departments.

    Throughout the campaign, variable message boards will be set up somewhere along the 37 miles of the two parkways. Three messages will be displayed one after the other to passing motorists and will be programmed to read: "Check your Speed," "Speed Limit 50" and "50 Means 50."

    The campaign will utilize marked and unmarked police cars, motorcycles and both radar and lidar speed detection devices
    Laser Interceptor Dual, Laser Interceptor Quad, Valentine 1 & The Escort 8500 X50 - Blue, Uniden BC296D, GRE500, Lasershield, 2011 Kia Soul +, Yamaha FZ6, 2005 Black Dodge Neon SRT-4,

    My mom told me that once while I was driving. I said "you're exactly right, 50 *miles* per hour"
