Operation Southern Shield Starts Soon

Georgia and South Carolina will join Florida, Alabama and Tennessee for a regional week long speed enforcement initiative on July 17-23. It’s called, “Operation Southern Shield.”

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, speeding is the cause of 30 percent of the traffic deaths in the United States each year.

Next week, state and local law enforcement agencies will be stepping up patrols to enforce posted speed limits on all highways, roads and streets.
