Default Troopers up enforcement in safety corridors this weekend Read more here: http://www.

http://www.adn.com/2012/05/24/247888...in-safety.html

With the start of Memorial Day weekend, Alaska State Troopers are stepping up enforcement in the four safety corridors across the state from now until July 1. These areas have had a historically higher number of collisions with serious injuries and fatalities. Fines are double in these corridors, which include:


Mileposts 87 to 117 of the Seward Highway,

Mileposts 44.5 to 53 of the Parks Highway,

Mileposts 83 to 93 of the Sterling Highway,

Mileposts 0.6 to 17.2 of Knik-Goose Bay Road.

Law enforcement officers will look for poor driving like speeding, passing in no-passing zones and erratic driving. Officers also will be looking for motorists not wearing seat belts. Motorists should drive with headlights on where it's posted to do so. You can report dangerous drivers to the Troopers by calling 911.

Troopers will be in the Knik River Public Use Area on all-terrain vehicles and four-wheel-drive pickups to ensure that people are using the area appropriately. Regulations prohibit activities like burning wood pallets, target shooting in restricted areas, shooting at targets made of unauthorized materials and cutting down trees.

The American Red Cross offers these travel safety tips:

ADVERTISEMENT

Be well rested and alert,

Don't follow other vehicles closely.

Stop frequently when traveling long distances.

Clean your vehicle's lights and windows.

Drive with headlights on.

Carry an emergency kit.

Let someone known your destination, route and expected arrival or return time.


Have a safe and ticket free weekend folks!

But Mike, it's so hard to do those things. I just don't wanna! I just need to save those 3 minutes to get there. *This is sarcasm by the way folks.

I'd recommend specially adding a fire extinguisher to that emergency kit. Twice in under 6 mos I used one for vehicle fires. Plus, the way we modify our cars, you may need it for yourself.

Drive safe this weekend folks. The extra minutes saved just aren't worth the consequences.

Make sure you mount the fire extinguisher in a safe place so it doesnt accidently go off like Todd's did at an autocross last year.
