Va. plans interstate highway speeding crackdown
Virginia State Police are cracking down on speeders on three segments of interstate highways through Tuesday.
The agency calls the initiative Operation Air, Land and Speed.
The focus is on Interstate 77 outside of Wytheville, Interstate 295 in the Richmond metro area, and Interstate 85 south of the Petersburg-Hopewell area.
State police said more troopers will man those areas to target speeders, aggressive drivers and impaired drivers.
Federal highway safety funds pay for the enforcement effort, which state police say will not affect operations on other primary and secondary roads.
