INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana State Police has released results of a five-day traffic enforcement effort focused around the Thanksgiving holiday.
ISP has participated in the Combined Accident Reduction Effort (or C.A.R.E.) since the inception of the multi-state enforcement project in 1977, of which Indiana and Michigan were the founding members. Now, more than three dozen local and state law enforcement agencies nationwide participate in this life saving enforcement project, according to a news release.
The "Thanksgiving Holiday Project C.A.R.E." ran from Nov. 21 to Nov. 25. Below are the Indiana results from the five-day enforcement project. Over 5,600 stops were made.
While most information is self-explanatory, ‘CMV’ stands for Commercial Motor Vehicle and ‘Motorist Assists’ reflects the number of times motorists were assisted by state police officers while roadside. Examples of the type of assistance provided would include help with directions, changing a flat tire, calling a tow truck, obtaining fuel or other types of services to assist the motoring public.
