KHP joins I-80/I-35 high visibility enforcement

The Kansas Highway Patrol is joining multiple other states ahead of the Labor Day weekend and during the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over mobilization, for the I-80 and I-35 High Visibility Enforcement Project. The Kansas Highway Patrol accepted a challenge from the Iowa State Patrol (whose state sits at the crossroads of I-35 and I-80) to join the effort. The goal of the enforcement is to reduce serious injury and fatality crashes on the nation's interstates, combat criminal activity, as well as draw much needed attention to traffic safety. The enforcement will run Aug. 28 through Aug. 30.
