Delaware Highway Clampdown Nets 214 Speeding Tickets, 67 DUIs

July 16, 2008

The Delaware Office of Highway Safety says 214 citations for speeding violations were issued during the first week of the 2008 Stop Aggressive Driving Campaign.

Besides the speeding citations, authorities also arrested four people for aggressive driving, one for DUI and two for other crimes.

It is the third part of the 120 Days of Summer Heat initiative. Officials say statewide crash data shows DUI and speeding are the two leading causes of traffic deaths in Delaware.

Police say 67 people have been charged with driving under the influence three weeks into the state’s Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign. Officials say 28 arrests took place during four sobriety checkpoints last weekend. Four more are planned for this coming weekend.
