Alabama Law Enforcement Agency launches its second annual Think Smart Before You Start spring safety campaign to prepare families and students for travel-focused events at the end of the school year.
ALEA State Troopers encourage parents to take the opportunity to discuss the importance of following the rules of the road and explain the consequences of distracted or impaired driving.
Year-end events will soon be in full swing, and Alabamians should expect heavier traffic on state roads. ALEA Secretary Hal Taylor said parents should be aware of the dangers associated with events at this time of year.
“It’s one of the busiest times of the year, especially for families attending spring break or end-of-school functions,” Taylor said. “We certainly encourage everyone to think smart before they start and understand that the choices you make behind the wheel can affect your life and the lives of others.”
ALEA soldiers will focus their enforcement efforts until the end of May on traffic violations that frequently contribute to accidents.
