Ahead of the upcoming 4th of July holiday weekend, Mississippi and its neighboring states have partnered up for a safety initiative.
Tomorrow (July 1), the Mississippi Highway Patrol, along with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and the Louisiana State Police, will participate in the “10-8 on 10, One Road, One Mission” enforcement effort.
Preceding the 4th of July holiday travel period, the initiative will see each agency place troopers all across Interstate 10 to remove impaired drivers, reduce crashes, promote seatbelt usage, and deter speeding. In addition, troopers will also focus on drivers who fail to move over to the left hand lane when a law enforcement, emergency or tow vehicle is parked on the side of the road.
“In joining with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and the Louisiana State Police, we are committed to one mission, keeping the public safe,” Colonel Randy Ginn, Director of the Mississippi Highway Patrol, said. “As Troopers, we share not only borders, but the same goals in saving lives and providing safe travel to and through our states.”
This high visibility enforcement detail is designed to keep motorists safe during peak travel times.
