Results announced for I-95 traffic enforcement campaign


The Delaware State Police and the Delaware Office of Highway Safety partnered with other law enforcement agencies along the Interstate 95 corridor and across the state in the “Drive to Save Lives” campaign April 1-3.

The operation was a multi-jurisdictional, high-visibility traffic enforcement initiative that increased police presence along the interstate, from Maine to Florida.

Nearly 650 troopers were deployed, resulting in over 6,700 traffic citations issued, including 2,200 for speeding, 315 for aggressive driving, 199 for illegal cellphone use, 233 for seat belt violations and 36 for improper child restraints. In addition, the campaign netted 110 DUI arrests and 25 fugitive apprehensions.

The Delaware Department of Transportation also assisted in the effort.
