As schools let out and summer arrives, the Broward Sheriff’s Office is reminding everyone driving in Broward County to slow down and get to your destinations safely.
As temperatures climb, so does the traffic and congestion on the roadways. With nearly two million people in Broward County, in addition to visitors and tourists, the roads and highways are often congested with vehicles. The increasing amount of vehicles can lead to aggressive driving habits that include speeding. BSO’s Regional Traffic Unit will be conducting Operation Summer Splash in hopes of reducing dangerous driving behavior.
Operation Summer Splash begins Monday, June 14, and will continue through the end of July. BSO’s traffic units and road patrol will be educating and enforcing safe driving habits throughout the county with an increased law enforcement presence. Deputies will be focusing on aggressive driving, speeding violations and distracted and impaired driving.
No matter where you’re headed this summer, remember to slow down on the roads, obey the traffic laws and arrive alive.
