Multi-state trooper enforcement effort on I-55 kicks off on Wednesday


Law enforcement agencies in three states will be teaming up for a high-visibility traffic enforcement effort starting on Wednesday.

Starting on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the Tennessee Highway Patrol, and Louisiana State Police are joining forces for the “Line To Line” traffic safety enforcement effort on I-55.

During the enforcement effort, troopers will patrol I-55 “to reduce the number of crashes, promote seatbelt usage, deter speeding and remove impaired drivers.”

“Our goal with “Line to Line” is to raise driving safety awareness as we approach the Memorial Day holiday travel period. We encourage drivers to remember that their actions behind the wheel have consequences, both good and bad, for themselves and others,” said Colonel Randy Ginn, Director of the Mississippi Highway Patrol. “If everyone will simply slow down, buckle up, put down their phone and avoid driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, we can all have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend.”

Memorial Day traffic enforcement efforts will continue through the holiday weekend throughout the state of Mississippi, with the official Mississippi Highway Patrol 2021 Memorial Day enforcement period beginning on Friday, May 28th at 12:01 a.m. and will concluding on Monday, May 31st at midnight.
