State Police Operation Air, Land and Speed Traffic-Safety Enforcement Weekend

If you were speeding, driving recklessly or driving impaired on Interstate 81 or 95, then you were one of the thousands of motorists cited during the weekend as part of Virginia State Police’s Operation Air, Land and Speed traffic-safety enforcement effort. The good news, however, is that during the special initiative, there were no fatal traffic crashes reported on either interstate.

On July 17 through July 18, Virginia State Police stopped a total of 3,313 speeders, 628 reckless drivers and 12 drunk drivers between both interstates. A total of 248 safety belt violations were cited, and 15 drug and felony arrests were made by state troopers. The operation yielded 6,264 total summonses and arrests.
