DOVER, Del.– Delaware State Police say they are joining forcing with 14 other states in a major traffic enforcement initiative on Saturday.

All 15 states lining Interstate 95 from Maine to Florida will take part in the intensified enforcement initiative called, "The Drive to Save Lives on I-95," led and organized by DSP.

DSP Superintendent Col. Nathaniel McQueen Jr. said he hopes that the campaign will reduce highway fatalities by 15 percent. Currently, these fatalities are one of the top 12 causes of death in the U.S.

This Saturday, law enforcement in each of the 15 states will conduct traffic initiatives along the 1,920 miles that make up I-95 as well as other targeted roadways in an effort to make these roads safer and reduce fatalities. The initiative focuses on aggressive driving, distracted driving, speeders, seatbelt use, pedestrian and motorcycle safety, as well as commercial vehicle safety and enforcement.

DSP said troopers will be out in strong numbers on Saturday, conducting traffic enforcement initiatives statewide by ground and air.  They will target the following several roadways, as well as others:

New Castle County:

I-95, I-495, SR-1

Kent County:

SR-1

Sussex County:
US 13
US 113
SR-1
