Troopers Patrol for Distracted, Aggressive and Impaired Drivers
Each of the 22 state police installations will have additional troopers on patrol conducting traffic enforcement. These initiatives will include DUI saturation patrols, speed enforcement as well as focusing on aggressive and distracted driving.
Troopers will also be on guard for any flooding or hazardous road conditions caused by the storm. Drivers are reminded strong winds and heavy rains can lead to standing water and cause power outages, leaving traffic lights not functioning properly.
