Virginia State Police troopers are conducting a two-day enforcement effort along Interstates 95 and 81.
The state police's two-day Operation Air, Land and Speed started Sunday and continues through Monday along Virginia's north-south interstates. The most recent similar effort took place March 6 and 7. It resulted in more than 7,000 arrests and summonses on speeding, drunken driving and other offenses.
State police say Virginia troopers also will take part in Click It or Ticket, which runs Monday through June 6. That effort is a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration campaign to encourage motorists to wear their safety belts.
