PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Highway Patrol says it issued 260 citations to drivers across the state on Tuesday as part of a campaign targeting motorists ahead of the July 4 holiday.
Nearly 780 warnings also were given out to drivers during the “Operation Safe” campaign. Troopers also responded to two injury crashes, nine non-injury crashes and assisted 49 motorists stranded on the highway.
Highway Patrol Superintendent Col. Craig Price says the campaign shows that troopers are working to prevent speeding, encourage seatbelt use and reduce alcohol-related crashes.
