Troopers Plan ‘Strict’ Traffic Law Enforcement Over Holiday

READING PA – Pennsylvania State Police in Troop L, which provides law enforcement coverage in Berks, Lebanon, and Schuylkill counties, issued a friendly warning Monday (June 27, 2022). They’ll be “strictly enforcing” state vehicle code violations during the Independence Day holiday weekend.

Troopers will target driving under the influence, aggressive driving, distracted driving, seatbelt usage, and speeding, the troop’s announcement stated. The enforcement effort, they added, “is to promote highway safety and safe travel.”

Similar enforcements, although not yet publicly announced, might be expected also from Troop J, which covers Chester, Lancaster, and York counties; and Troop K, which covers Montgomery, Delaware, and Philadelphia counties.

“Safe and responsible celebration” of the holiday is a theme to be echoed Wednesday (June 29) during a scheduled Enola PA press conference involving representatives of the state police, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, and the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. They will focus, respectively, on impaired driving, highway safety, and the use of fireworks; boating safety and boating while impaired; and on state parks, forests, and all-terrain vehicle safety.
