(FREDERICK, MD) – Four state police agencies will engage in “Operation Border to Border,” a coordinated traffic safety enforcement initiative targeting approximately 400 miles of U.S. Route 15, a heavily-traveled thoroughfare for summer vacationers and for those attempting to avoid congested interstates serving all four states.
Just as schools let out for the summer on Friday, June 15, 2012, state troopers from Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and North Carolina will carry out ‘Operation Border to Border’ to prevent traffic crashes along the length of U.S. Route 15, which extends through all four jurisdictions. State Police from each of the four agencies will work together, conducting saturation patrols, sobriety check points and other enforcement initiatives to reduce traffic crashes and combat criminal behavior along this major non-interstate highway. The initiative runs June 15, 2012, through Sunday, June 17, 2012.
Three of the participating agencies, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia, will be hosting a press event to kickoff this first-of-its-kind safety project on Thursday, June 14, 2012:
