#VSP Urging Motorists to Drive Safe & Make it to the Holiday Table this #Thanksgiving... #BuckleUp, #PhoneDown – Don’t Drive Intexticated
As Virginians take to the roads this Thanksgiving to celebrate the holiday with family and friends, Virginia State Police is urging motorists to put down their phones and buckle up so everyone makes it safely to the holiday table.
With the onset of the 2019 winter holiday season, state police is proud to support the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Highway Safety Office and AAA Mid-Atlantic with its new traffic safety campaign aimed at heightening awareness of the deadly dangers of distracted driving. Earlier this month, Virginia State Police Superintendent, Col. Gary T. Settle, and Trooper-Trainees of the 131st Basic Academy Session signed a banner to pledge their support to the “Don’t Drive Intoxicated. Don’t Drive Intexticated” campaign and its life-saving messaging.
“The choices you make as a vehicle driver impact not only you and your passengers, but everyone else you happen to be sharing the road with at that given moment,” said Settle. “Avoid distractions, ensure everyone in your vehicle is buckled up, comply with speed limits and never drive drunk. If we drive like every car is filled with our friends and family, we can make sure there are no empty chairs at the Thanksgiving table this year.”
To further prevent traffic deaths and injuries during the Thanksgiving holiday, the Virginia State Police will once again be participating in Operation C.A.R.E., an acronym for the Crash Awareness and Reduction Effort. As part of the state-sponsored, national program, state police will be increasing its visibility and traffic enforcement efforts during the five-day statistical counting period, Nov. 27, 2019 through Dec. 1, 2019.
The 2018 Thanksgiving Holiday C.A.R.E. initiative resulted in troopers citing 599 individuals who failed to obey the law and buckle up, as well as issuing 199 citations for child safety seat violations on Virginia’s highways statewide. In addition, state police cited 7,629 speeders and 2,192 reckless drivers. A total of 102 drunken drivers were taken off Virginia’s roadways and arrested by state troopers.
There were 12 traffic fatalities during the 2018 five-day Thanksgiving statistical counting period and 14 traffic fatalities during the same period in 2017. *
With increased patrols, Virginia State Police also reminds drivers of Virginia’s “Move Over” law, which requires motorists to move over when approaching an emergency vehicle stopped alongside the road. If unable to move over, drivers are required to cautiously pass the emergency vehicle. The law also applies to workers in vehicles equipped with amber lights.
Buckle up and phone down!! It’s gonna be a long weekend troopers but thank you for all you do for all of us.
Meanwhile, y'all be safe out there! Thank you for watch out for us!
Steven Thompson, Love how they always take pictures on the “forbidden staircase”!!! 😂❤️🖤💙🖤💙🖤💙
My nephew Jacob is in the center row 3 from the rear. So proud of his commitment and hard work.
Awsome words Beauty ful picture
You guys stay safe out there, too.
And if you see law enforcement or fire and ems on stop on the side of the road please MOVE OVER !!!!!
You don't have to get there first. Just get there alive!
Ticket all the left lane coasters that are half asleep or on their phones and the roads would be safer!
When a lane closure is posted people keep flying by and then expect you to let them in. So ridiculous!
That lobby and staircase do nothing to make you guys look less of a religious cult.
How about an enforcement en mass? been while...
This should be in effect every time that you drive☝️
Well Purcellville already has it's own tax, but if Berryvillian's don't want growth like purcellville than it's not worth it. Some don't like change, but you have to have growth to add taxes as such, and change doesn't bother me as really things are going to be done whether people like for it to or not, just as this probably will, but I still say, you need to have growth for this to work properly.
Need to focus on retaining more Commercial & industrial taxpayers to offset the RE tax.
I’m still trying to figure out where to get a meal at in Clarke County?👁
lol meal tax! I'll keep my money out of Clarke then!
Clarke county has always been bass Ackwards. They don’t have enough decent restaurants to sustain a meals tax￼. It’s usually the residents who foot bill

Martinsburg Drug House Ordinance Proves a “Game Changer” for Community
The Martinsburg Police Department announced today the continued dramatic results and positive impact of the City’s innovative Drug House Ordinance. Since its enactment in April, 2016 the ordinance has been utilized 59 times with significant results in drug enforcement, cleaning up city neighborhoods, improving the quality of life for decent families, and maximizing police resources.
MPD Chief Maury Richards and Deputy Chief George Swartwood submitted a “3rd Year Update and Assessment” to Martinsburg’s Mayor, City Council, and City Manager. Chief Richards describes the three-year results of Drug House Ordinance enforcement as “absolutely amazing.” “We always knew that the Ordinance eliminated illegal drug activity and reduced repeat calls-for-service at the problem locations by 90%—which was great just in itself,” the Martinsburg Chief stated. “But now that we’ve seen the huge impact Drug House enforcement has had on reducing crime and illegal drug activity on the entire block, it’s clear that the Ordinance is an absolute game changer for the entire Martinsburg community,” Richards added.
On Monday, November 11, 2019, the Martinsburg Police Department and Berkeley County Schools investigated a threat of a school shooting to occur tomorrow at South Middle School. The threat was investigated and two juvenile suspects have been identified. The threat has been cleared as non-credible and charges are being filed against the juveniles. ... See MoreSee Less
