Troop H Releases Results Of Special Enforcement Project--July Fourth
Captain James E. McDonald, commanding officer of Troop H, St. Joseph, announces the results of the special enforcement project over the July Fourth holiday. The project encompassed two days, July 3, 2018, and July 4, 2018, designated as the peak travel days for the holiday period. Interstate 35 was the roadway designated for this project and troopers were assigned 20-mile sections of the interstate from the Clinton County line to the Iowa state line. As a result of the project, troopers made one arrest for driving while intoxicated, and issued 142 citations and 301 warnings. There were two additional misdemeanor warrant arrests made as a result of the project. Troopers assisted 26 motorists over the two-day period.
“Troop H troopers’ vigorous enforcement efforts this July Fourth weekend helped keep everyone traveling through Troop H safer,” stated Captain McDonald.
The only 100 percent survivable traffic crash is the one that never happens. Make sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. Every day as we travel on Missouri’s roadways, we trust that every driver on the road is going to obey the speed limit, pay attention, and drive sober.
“Don’t Violate The Trust.”
