An Aggressive Campaign against Drivers
Kreps Law Firm, LLC is well aware of how Alabama residents and out-of-state drivers are targeted by state traffic enforcement. In 2007, the Alabama Department of Public Safety began the Take Back Our Highways Campaign.
For one week each in August and November 2007, almost every available Alabama state trooper (whether patrol or not) was assigned to patrol Alabama's highways. Approximately 200 additional officers who normally were assigned to other duties were also assigned to patrol state highways.
The Campaign's Results
During the week of August 13-17, 2007, Alabama state troopers and other officers wrote 26,126 traffic tickets. The number of speeding and traffic tickets written during this same week in 2006 was only 5,932.
Alabama residents and out-of-state drivers need to know that the Alabama Department of Public Safety plans to continue these Take Back Our Highways campaigns and traffic blitzes throughout 2008 and beyond.
