[ISP] Indiana State Police Crash Reduction Efforts Continue
Start Date: 10/22/2012Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 10/22/2012End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description

Lowell:  Crash reduction has always been a priority with the state police, for the last several years state police have been looking more closely at statistical data from crash reports statewide which is more readily available through the Automated Reported Information and Exchange System (ARIES).

This system revealed that there is an occurrence of some type of commercial motor vehicle crash every 1.2 days for following too close and every other day for speeding.  These crashes are mainly occurring on the Interstates, U.S. Highways and State Roads within the Lowell District.

A joint enforcement effort with the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division (CVED) and District 13 troopers will be conducted with strict enforcement for violations committed by commercial motor vehicles and passenger cars.

Our primary objective is to strive to reduce all types of crashes involving trucks and cars by taking aggressive enforcement action for the top three crash causation violations: speed, following too closely and unsafe lane movement.

This joint effort will utilize a combination of marked and traditional unmarked patrol cars, as well as non-traditional stealth patrol vehicles inclusive of Ford Mustangs, aircraft patrols and state police vehicles that look like INDOT work trucks.  We will also be implementing the SWIFT (Speed With Intent Following Too Close) Patrol. 

SWIFT will be utilizing the DBC (Distance Between Cars) software on LTI 20/20 Lidar speed timing devices.  Two simple pulls of the trigger and troops no longer have to rely on just their visual estimate between vehicles.  This software not only measures the speed but exactly how close a vehicle is to the car it’s following, both in time and distance.

Major Jeff Walker, Commander of the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division and Lieutenant Jerry Williams, Commander of Indiana State Police Lowell District both commented that the state police are committed to lowering the number of crashes that injure and kill people on our roadways and will use all tools and enforcement methods to stop these needless tragedies.
