LSP clock speeders for Operation Safe Corridor
GROSSE TETE - In an effort to curtail drunk driving and put a stop to speeders, Louisiana State Police is keeping a close eye on the interstates across the country.
It's called Operation Safe Corridor. State police have also partnered with six other states including: Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. This is the first time all the states I-10 travels through, have teamed up for enforcement efforts.
On Friday, travelers in Grosse Tete saw an increase in police patrol.
"It's an increase in troopers and local law enforcement on our roadways with high visibility traffic enforcement," said Trooper Nick Manale. "Having everybody work together in a cooperative and concentrative effort, we'll have the same level of enforcement throughout the entire I-10 state corridor."
Police are joining forces with eyes in the skies, to decrease serious injury and fatal crashes. Troopers are working with multiple helicopters and airplanes to track speeders.
Operation Safe Corridor will be active along I-10 through Monday.
