The Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau is announcing that the next Special Traffic Enforcement Program (sTEP) wave will be March 14 – 17, 2013. Enforcement agencies from around the state will be out in force during those dates looking for motorists who are violating traffic laws during the Saint Patrick’s Day weekend.
The sTEP program consists of five high visibility enforcement waves throughout the year meant to get motorists to change their driving behavior by buckling up, slowing down, driving sober and obeying all traffic laws in order to reduce the number of traffic crashes and to save lives.
During the sTEP wave conducted over Saint Patrick’s weekend last year, there were 16,279 traffic violations reported by 234 law enforcement agencies that had more than 1,600 officers working the enforcement event.
The next sTEP wave will be conducted May 20 – June 2nd during the Memorial Day Holiday.
