FHP Crackdown Underway For The Fourth

June 30, 2012

The Florida Highway Patrol will be out in full force during the Independence Day holiday travel period, which began Saturday and extends through 8 a.m. July 5.

“The Florida Highway Patrol is committed to making the highways a safer place to drive, by intensifying our patrol efforts to reduce the number of crashes,” said FHP Director, Col. David Brierton. “Our troopers will be on the roadways taking appropriate enforcement action to ensure public safety for Florida motorists during the holiday travel period.”

All uniformed FHP personnel, including those normally assigned to administrative duties, will patrol interstates and other major state roads throughout the holiday period. The strategy aims to increase the FHP presence throughout Florida in an effort to deter traffic violations and to enhance services to motorists who break down while traveling or who need other assistance.
