Virginia Police Conducting Traffic Enforcement Campaign
Police are out in force this week in Chesterfield County, Virginia, issuing speeding tickets and catching drunk drivers.
The holiday weekend sees thousands of motorists pass through Chesterfield County’s roadways, especially through Interstate 95 and Route 288. Fourth of July celebrations also include alcohol and may increase the potential for drunk drivers on the streets.
In an effort to combat traffic violators, the Chesterfield County Police Department is participating in the Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign. The enforcement campaign, which kicked off Tuesday night, will take place through the Fourth of July holiday and into the weekend. Motorists will see police checkpoints set up in various locations throughout the county. Police will be stopping motorists suspected of driving under the influence. County police are also targeting drivers who are speeding, running red lights and caught not wearing a seat-belt.
If you come across a police checkpoint in Chesterfield this week, slow down and obey the officer. While you may be worried about receiving a DUI charge, don’t make matters worse by eluding police or receiving other related charges. Virginia police are committed to keeping the roads and highways safe for everyone this week.
