ISP troopers joining others in drunk driving crackdown

Sunday, March 6, 2011

PUTNAMVILLE -- Troopers from the Indiana State Police Putnamville District have joined more than 250 other Indiana law enforcement agencies in the "Drunk Driving: Over the Limit. Under Arrest," March crackdown on impaired and dangerous driving.

Through March 20, officers will work overtime to conduct high-visibility enforcement activities designed specifically to identify impaired drivers. Motorists will also see an increased number of patrols looking for aggressive drivers and unrestrained motorists during the 17-day mobilization.

Operation Pull Over Blitz 66 is a statewide enforcement effort supported by federal funding allocated to the Indiana State Police from the Traffic Safety Division of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.

they are cutting thousands of jobs and paying overtime to look for unrestrained drivers, give me a break why dont they use that money for full time jobs for a few and do real work with the money, its not that i agree about the impaired drivers since they are out there but if they really want to get them off the roads take a few out of the state offices. For example i was in the government center they had 4 state policeman at the door along with 3 others assisting in body scans and this was at everydoor to me it seemed such a waste of manpower that us taxpayers are expected to pay when they claim we was broke
