Pa., N.J. State Police announce ‘Operation Double Vision’

Troopers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania are teaming up together to conduct a highway initiative called ‘Operation Double Vision’.

Pennsylvania State Police Troop M (serving Bucks, Lehigh and Northampton Counties) is partnering with New Jersey State Police Troop B (serving Warren, Sussex, Morris, Hunterdon and Somerset Counties) to conduct a new highway safety initiative called Operation Double Vision, Pennsylvania Sate Police said in a news release Wednesday.

This detail is a unique heightened traffic enforcement program that will consist of extra patrols from both departments roving throughout the highways. The goal is to identify and apprehend drivers who drive aggressively, exhibit distracted driving behavior, and drivers that are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, police said.

Enforcement will also concentrate on moving violations such as speeding and reckless driving as well as seat belt, child safety seat violations and commercial vehicle violations, police said,

Both the Pennsylvania State Police and New Jersey State Police are committed to making the Commonwealth and the Garden State highways safe for our commuters, police said.

Operation Double Vision will increase patrols as part of a continuing effort toward traffic safety. Remember, when you see flashing lights, slow down and steer clear. It is the Law., police said.
