Indiana State Police increase patrols during Fourth of July holiday

Posted by on Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019 @ 6:42 am.

INDIANA - Indiana State Police will be increasing patrols starting today (July 3) and will be concentrating their enforcement efforts on impaired drivers, distracted drivers and for those drivers and passengers not buckled up.

Last year during the three day holiday period, 1,623 crashes occurred throughout Indiana resulting in 396 injuries and six fatalities. Troopers would like to remind all motorists that they must do their part to help ensure our roadways are safe.

Troopers encourage everyone to follow these safety tips:

  • Ensure everyone is buckled up.
  • Don’t drive impaired.
  • If you plan to consume alcohol, make sure you have a plan to get home safely.
  • Don’t drive distracted.
  • If you’re traveling a long distance, make sure you are well rested. A fatigued driver is a dangerous driver.

If you’re traveling and notice a suspected impaired driver, please call 911 and report the vehicle’s description, route of travel and registration information if possible. Never pass a suspected impaired driver. Follow the vehicle at a safe distance.
