Captain James W. Remilliard, commanding officer Troop I, Rolla, announces that Troop I will be participating in special enforcement operations throughout the Independence Day weekend.  The objective of the special operations is to promote safety and reduce traffic crashes.  Throughout the entire holiday weekend, troopers assigned to the Troop I region and across the entire state will be participating in Operation C.A.R.E. (Crash Awareness & Reduction Effort).  In addition to Operation C.A.R.E., Troop I will also participate in in a special enforcement operation during the peak travel periods on Friday, June 30, and Tuesday, July 4.  During this operation, Troop I troopers will be assigned to 20-mile stretches of Interstate 44 to maximize visibility.  Enforcement efforts on secondary roads within Troop I will also be conducted during the same time frame.  Over the entire holiday weekend, troopers will be aggressively looking for traffic violations and be especially vigilant to excessive speed, careless and imprudent driving and other aggressive driving violations.  Troopers will also be available to assist motorists as needed.

The only 100 percent survivable traffic crash is the one that never happens. Make sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. Every day as we travel on Missouri’s roadways, we trust that every driver on the road is going to obey the speed limit, pay attention, and drive sober. “Don’t Violate The Trust.”
