Troopers Conducting Special Detail Along I-10

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Highway Patrol is conducting a special detail along the state’s western stretch of Interstate 10/

The Interstate 10 Challenge is an intensified enforcement effort that began Friday and continues through Sunday in seven counties that line the interstate in the western section of Florida’s Panhandle.

Troopers will be focusing on the Move Over law, which protects law enforcement officers and emergency workers and tow truck drivers stopped along roadways. They’ll also be looking for distracted and aggressive drivers and for seat belt violators.

The agency reminds motorists to buckle up, obey speed limits and to drive sober and alert. They also say drivers should eliminate distractions while driving, including texting, talking on the phone or anything else that can take your eyes off the road.
