Memorial Day Weekend Kicks
Off Alaska's Summer Season
May 27, 2005
Memorial Day Weekend is the traditional kickoff for Alaska's
summer season. The Alaska State Troopers, along with law enforcement
officers across the State, will be on the roads, in the air,
and on the beaches concentrating on enforcement of safety belt
and child restraint, DUI, impeding, and personal flotation device
laws. It is also the second enforcement period for Operation
C.A.R.E., the Combined Accident Reduction Effort. The Alaska
State Troopers ask you to remember to drive with CARE and help
- Use age-appropriate child
restraints for all children and wear your safety belt. Be sure
all your passengers are buckled up. "Click It Or Ticket."
- Drive and boat sober.
- Pull over in a safe turnout
if you are driving slower than the posted speed limit and have
five or more vehicles behind you.
- Take rest breaks to avoid
- Allow adequate travel time
and obey posted speed limits.
As the summer time travel season
begins, Alaska State Troopers remain committed to supporting
Operation C.A.R.E. and its mission of reducing traffic crashes

2004, Alaska State Trooper responses included: 10 motor vehicle
crashes, 10 DUI arrests, 497 speed citations issued, and 101
