Troopers Halfway Through Memorial Day Weekend CIOT Campaign

Police BlotterThe Alaska State Troopers and Alaska Wildlife Troopers are halfway through the Annual Memorial Day Weekend Click It or Ticket High Visibility Enforcement Effort .

From 5/15/2017 thru 5/25/2017, troopers conducted the following investigations:

16 drivers charged with driving with a suspended or revoked license.

64 REDDIs reported with 16 drivers contacted and ultimately determined not to be DUI.

25 damage only crashes, 4 injury crashes and 0 fatal collisions investigated by troopers.

Of the 623 citations issued, 259 were for speeding and 71 issued for seatbelt or other occupant restraint violations.

The main focus of the National Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign is to save lives. AST hopes motorists drive safely throughout the High Visibility Enforcement campaign and the rest of the summer. Wearing seatbelts saves lives and goes a long way to protect all vehicle occupants from being seriously injured or killed.

Please do your part in keeping our roadways safe by not driving impaired. Additionally, don’t hesitate to make a REDDI report any time of the year by calling 911! To learn more about REDDI (Report Every Dangerous Driver Immediately) visit http://www.dot.alaska.gov/stwdplng/hwysafety/REDDI.shtml.

Funding for the High Visibility Enforcement Campaign was funded by grants distributed by the Alaska Highway Safety Office.
