LITTLE ROCK, AR – Law enforcement agencies across Arkansas plan to perform saturation patrols and checkpoints from August 17th to September 3rd, searching for drunk drivers and those who ignore seat belt and child safety seat laws.
The timing coincides with Labor Day, which is on September 3rd.
The stated goal of the operation is to prevent injuries and save lives. Arkansas State Police say 3 out of every 10 accidents in Arkansas involve alcohol, and 6 out of every 10 people killed in traffic accidents were “not properly restrained.”
