Twelve people have died in traffic deaths this month in Hampton Roads, prompting state police to bring a special safety initiative here this weekend.
Operation Air, Land and Speed will target area interstates today and tomorrow with troopers stepping up their presence and looking for unsafe, aggressive driving, according to a state police news release.
The goal of the safety initiative is to remind drivers to slow down and buckle their seatbelts, the release says.
The safety initiative has been used around the state with 69,671 tickets written since 2006, the release says.
