(Undated) - For many, summer has just begun, and Troopers with the Indiana State Police are taking an active role in traffic safety. Officers will be on the lookout for drivers not following posted speed limits, following too closely, making unsafe lane changes, and failing to buckle up themselves and children in need of restraints. The Indiana State Police officers will also be on the lookout for impaired drivers.
Next weekend the State Police and the Dearborn County Sheriff Department will be participating in the “Click it or Ticket” the National Highway Traffic campaign aimed at increasing the use of seat belts among young people in the United States.
Motorists are reminded to make sure they are well rested before traveling. Also, to avoid tailgating and following of the two-second rule. Drivers are urged to make sure all vehicle passengers are buckled up at all times.
This reminder comes as the Memorial Day weekend approaches and the unofficial start of summer begins.
