Troopers To Intensify Patrols On I-95

New Jersey State Police Partnering With Other Agencies for “Drive to Save Lives on I-95”

West Trenton, N.J. – On Saturday, May 17, 2014, the New Jersey State Police and troopers from 14 other states will intensify patrols along the 1,920 miles of Interstate 95, in a united effort to keep motorists safe and to reduce fatalities.  Troopers will focus on speeders, aggressive driving, seatbelt use, cell phone use, and DWI enforcement.

“Drive to Save Lives on I-95” is being conducted in support of the “Drive to Save Lives Campaign,” which is the nationwide initiative by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) to reduce highway fatalities by 15% in 2014.

Each year, more than 33,000 traffic related fatalities occur on our nation’s roadways, and highway fatalities rank as one of the top 12 causes of death in the U.S.  Traffic accidents are the leading cause of death among teens.

“We are always looking for new strategies to reduce traffic related deaths,” said Colonel Rick Fuentes, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police.  “This is a cooperative, data-driven initiative, targeting driving behaviors that are proven contributing factors of crash fatalities.  On Saturday, our state troopers will be actively participating in this initiative on I-95 and on all of the roadways patrolled by the New Jersey State Police.”
