Beginning Thursday, July 1, the Mississippi Highway Patrol will be joining with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and the Louisiana State Police in participating in an effort on U.S. Interstate 10 named, “10-8 on 10, One Road, One Mission.” The multi-agency effort along I-10 seeks to remove impaired drivers, reduce crashes, deter speeding and promote the use of seat belts.
The efforts will place troopers in each state along I-10 and will seek to create safer driver conditions by the increased presence. The focus will also be on drivers who do not move to the left hand lane when a law enforcement, emergency or tow vehicle is parked on the side of the road.
The enforcement will be highly visible to the public and is designed to keep motorists safe during Fourth of July peak travel times.
“In joining with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and the Louisiana State Police, we are committed to one mission, keeping the public safe,” said Colonel Randy Ginn, Director of the Mississippi Highway Patrol in a statement. “As Troopers, we share not only borders, but the same goals in saving lives and providing safe travel to and through our states.”See a typo?
