Troop D to target major highways over holiday
May 22, 2009
Memorial Day holiday travellers need to pay attention to how they drive on Interstate 44, U.S. 65 and U.S. 60 this weekend.
Thatís because Missouri Highway Patrol Troop D troopers will take part in a statewide ď10-mile Trooper ProjectĒ targeting unsafe driving.
Troopers will look for traffic violations, but will pay special attention to speeding, careless and imprudent driving, and aggressive driving.
Troopers also will carry out a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to motorists who are stopped for traffic violations who arenít wearing seatbelts, according to the patrol.
