Troopers from the Indiana State Police Peru Post would like to encourage safe travels during this Labor Day weekend. To help ensure the safety of all motorists during this holiday period, the Indiana State Police will be participating in Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort) and DUIEP (Driving Under the Influence Enforcement Project). Both of these are federally funded programs that allow extra troopers to patrol Hoosier highways during the upcoming holiday period.

Efforts will be focused on aggressive drivers, distracted drivers, impaired drivers, and drivers and passengers not buckled up.

 Do your part to ensure safety on Indiana’s roads:

  • Don’t drive distracted
  • Avoid tailgating
  • Use turn signals
  • Obey the speed limit
  • Make sure everyone is buckled up
  • Don’t drive impaired by drugs or alcohol

If you do see a possibly impaired driver, call 911 and give the vehicle’s description, location and direction of travel, and license plate, if possible. The goal is for everyone to celebrate safely and responsibly to ensure a safe Labor Day weekend.  Be courteous to others while you are driving.
