STATE POLICE TO INCREASE MOTOR VEHICLE ENFORCEMENT IN HARTFORD AUGUST 2
 

   The Connecticut State Police Traffic Services Unit will bring additional manpower to existing patrols to conduct DUI and motor vehicle enforcement on Saturday, August 2, 2014, during the evening hours from 1800 hours to approximately 0200 hours.

 

   Troopers anticipate that there will be heavy traffic flow in the greater Hartford area due to a scheduled concert being held that evening.

 

   Troopers will concentrate their enforcement in the area of Jennings Road at the Exit #33 on-ramps to both I-91 northbound and southbound. In addition, Trumbull Street ramps will be patrolled.

 

   Troopers will concentrate enforcement on all motor vehicle violations to include DUI during the entire evening.  The State Police Breath Analysis Testing Unit (BAT Mobile) will be stationed on site nearby and will be utilized as needed to process and confine any/all DUI arrests.

 

   This enforcement effort is to enhance public safety for all who will be traveling in and around Hartford on Saturday, August 2nd.   

 

   The operation should serve as a reminder to all motorists not mix the consumption of alcohol with the operation of any vehicle.  Troopers will be on duty watching for all violations.
