Operation Air, Land and Speed goes on across Virginia
If you plan on enjoying all this nice weather with a drive, State Police want to remind you to watch your speed.
On Monday and Tuesday, troopers will be out in full force along Interstates 77, 295, and 85 as part of Operation Air, Land and Speed.
RICHMOND – As spring returns to the Commonwealth, so are the Virginia State Police to Interstate 77 outside of Wytheville, Interstate 295 in Metro-Richmond, and Interstate 85 south of the Tri-Cities as part of the continuing Operation Air, Land & Speed traffic safety effort. The two-day operation begins Monday, April 12, 2010, and concludes Tuesday night, April 13, 2010.
By targeting aggressive drivers, speeders and impaired drivers, Virginia State Police hope to further reduce the chances of traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities from occurring on the three selected interstate corridors.
With the increased presence of troopers on the interstates as part of the safety initiative, motorists are reminded to comply with Virginia's "Move Over" law. The state law requires drivers to change to another travel lane or, when not able to, to cautiously pass emergency personnel stopped on the side of the road.
