Utah Highway Patrol is teaming up with other law enforcement officials from California to New Jersey for a special effort starting this week called More Cops. More Stops.
The "I-80 Cross-Country Crackdown," is an effort to ramp up education and enforcement of life-saving traffic safety laws during the month of July.
A Utah Highway Patrol news release states that July is one of the busiest travel times of the year.
UHP will be one of 10 state police and highway patrol agencies working to eliminate traffic-related fatalities along Interstate 80 during the eight-day mission of safety.
