Florida Highway Patrol cracking down on dangerous I-95 drivers

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The Florida Highway Patrol is out in full force this week looking for dangerous drivers on Interstate 95.

Troopers are taking part in "Operation Safe Drive on I-95" through Thursday.

They are out looking for people speeding, texting behind the wheel, doing illegal lane changes and driving recklessly.

Troopers in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina are working together to patrol 900 miles of I-95, one of the busiest corridors in the country.

I-95 has the highest crash rate in these four states.

“As we work with our partners in other states, the Patrol continues its commitment to reduce the number of commercial vehicle related crashes,” said Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. “Whether you are driving a commercial motor vehicle or a passenger car, we want you to arrive at your destination safely.”

Law enforcement are also looking to make sure commercial drivers are following the laws and staying alert.

Fatigue is the leading cause of large truck crashes, according to the government.
