EMPHASIS: Troop G Prepares For Labor Day Traffic



Captain Mark G. Inman, commanding officer Troop G, Willow Springs, announces that Troop G will once again be participating in the Labor Day weekend enforcement operations. These operations' objective is to reduce the number and severity of traffic crashes. Throughout the holiday weekend, troopers within Troop G and throughout the state will be participating in Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort). In addition to Operation C.A.R.E., Troop G will also participate in the statewide 20-Mile Trooper project during the peak travel periods on Friday, August 29, and Monday, September 1. During this operation, troopers will be assigned to 20-mile stretches of U.S. Highway 60. Enforcement efforts on secondary roads will be conducted during the same timeframe within Troop G. Over the entire holiday weekend troopers will be vigorously enforcing all traffic laws and helping motorists in need of assistance.

In support of 'The Drive To ZERO Highway Deaths,' the Patrol encourages motorists to protect themselves and their passengers by making sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. Watercraft operators should ensure that everyone in the vessel is wearing an approved life jacket. Click It 4 Life And Wear It!!
