(LITTLE ROCK) – Arkansas law enforcement officers will launch a concentrated week-long speed enforcement plan next week. The operation will be promoted across the state using the message headline, “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine”.
The intensified enforcement effort will begin Monday, July 16th and continue through the following Sunday, July 22nd. The enforcement plan involves law enforcement departments across the state
“Speeding leads to death on our roadways,” said Colonel Bill Bryant, Director of the Arkansas State Police and the Governor’s Highway Safety Representative. “Higher speeds reduce a driver’s ability to steer safely around other vehicles, roadway hazards and unexpected highway exits or directions."
Drivers who ignore the speed limit put themselves, their passengers and other drivers at tremendous risk. During calendar year 2015, speeding was a contributing factor in 27 percent of all fatal crashes in the U.S. and more than 9,500 lives were lost in such crashes, according to the latest data available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
