Delaware State Police has announced “Operation Braking Point”, a zero-tolerance high-visibility campaign enforcement in response to the alarming increase of traffic fatalities that happened on Delaware roadways in 2022.
We’re told the campaign will run from January 9th through January 23rd along I-95, I-495, and State Route 1, where 27 traffic fatalities occurred last year. Police say of those fatalities, 37% were speed related.
DelDOT and the Office of Highway Safety will assist in this campaign. DelDOT will provide public education with overhead/variable message boards. This campaign will also carry directly into the kick-off of a seatbelt and distracted driving campaign.
Officials say they hope “Operation Braking Point” will proactively influence driving behavior and reduce the number of crashes on state roadways.
