HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency is partnering with state law enforcement agencies in Florida and Louisiana to participate in Operation SafeDRIVE, an initiative that aims to reduce the number of traffic accidents along the southeastern Interstate 10 corridor.
As a part of the operation, state law enforcement agencies will conduct quarterly, concentrated high traffic enforcement details throughout the year.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Florida and Louisiana in this initiative to make the roadways safer for all visitors and citizens who travel through our state,” said ALEA Secretary Hal Taylor. “We are committed to eliminating dangerous driving behaviors such as aggressive or distracted driving and educating all motorists – including both passenger vehicle and CMV drivers – on how to share the road safely.”
ALEA says the enforcement efforts will include monitoring for aggressive driving, speeding, following to closely, distracted driving, driving under the influence and ensuring seatbelts are being worn. Details will also ensure commercial motor vehicles are following regulations.
