The La Porte City Police Department will be conducting Aggressive Driving patrols from July 1st – July 21st. Officers will be working 60 hours of extra patrols under the Operation Pull Over grant. Aggressive driving patrols will target those dangerous moving violations that cause or directly contribute to traffic crashes.
The 4th of July celebration as well as the La Porte County 4-H fair will be in progress during this enforcement period. Officers will focus their efforts on these dangerous violations as wells as other dangerous moving violations such as Texting and Driving violations. The La Porte Police Department is dedicated to reducing the amount of injuries in the City of La Porte and all these efforts are in hopes of doing just that.
Operation Pull Over is a traffic safety grant program funded by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration and administered by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute. The goal of Operation Pull Over is to reduce traffic crash injuries and fatalities by promoting passenger restrain use, and supporting impaired and dangerous driving enforcement.
