"Operation Yellow Jacket" Stings the Pennsylvania Freeways


July012009
From a friend

A close friend sent us this info… so it MAY be incorrect. But we doubt it. This is concerning the 4th of July holiday weekend in Pennsylvania that is upon us and DUI Checkpoints. Be on the look out for Penn-Dot trucks parked along the road or appearing behind you pacing you, it could be a Trooper driving the truck, it is called "Operation Yellow Jacket" and will be off and on all summer, each district has a truck cleaned up and ready to go!

TIPS:
-USE CRUISE CONTROL AND IF YOU ARE IN THAT MUCH OF A HURRY AT NO MORE THAN 2 MILES ABOVE POSTED SPEED LIMIT.

-THE FEW MINUTES YOU SAVE SPEEDING, ISN'T WORTH A TICKET OR A GAMBLE WITH YOUR LIFE.

Starting today,
Pennsylvania will launch a 30 day speeding
ticket frenzy. The state estimates that 9 million dollars will be
generated in speeding tickets. 1 million will go to pay state troopers' overtime. There will be 50 state troopers on duty at all times
patrolling the 9 main intersections and highways. They are the following:

Rte. 51 north and south
PA-220
I-99 north and south
I-95 north and south
I-279 north and south
I-276 east and west
I-376 east and west
I-76 east and west
I-80 east and west
I-79 north and south
I-70 east and west
PA-60
PA-66
US-22 & 322

5 mph above the limit can justify a ticket and every state trooper is supposed to pull a car over and write a ticket every 10 to 20 minutes. They have issued 30 brand new unmarked Dodge Charger Police cruisers and are bringing in all of their part timers on full time. If you work in western Pennsylvania, you will probably take one of these highways. It's up to you how fast you are going when they clock you. KDKA and WDVE & CBS3 confirmed all of this. So be safe and don't forget speeding tickets are on you.

Driving Ticket fine increase in PA:
Starting on August 15th, the price of a ticket for violation of PA Law 39:3-29 (failure to show your driver's license, registration, or insurance card at the time you are stopped) is going from $44.00 to $173.00.

Please make sure your vehicles have the proper documents in them. If you jump in the car to run to the store and forget your wallet with your license in it and you are stopped.... Oh well... you just spent $173. And the fine for not having all three documents is $519!!!


Everybody be safe!
