During the week of August 13-18, 2007, the Alabama Department of Public Safety will have every supervisor and eligible staff person in uniform and on the roads. This will add approximately 150 more troopers to the highways during this week.
From what I understand they will be maintaining a “zero tolerance” rule on speeding and other violations, meaning that if you are 1 mile over the speed limit, you will be ticketed. They will also be looking for other traffic violations, such as not wearing seat belts and reckless driving.
The purpose of this campaign is to emphasize public safety on the roads and hopefully save lives. So take easy this August and any time for that matter.
