The Pennsylvania State Police in Troop K handled 45 crashes, with four being alcohol related, made 12 DUI arrests and issued 469 citations between Dec. 31 and Jan. 1, the department is reporting.
Troop K covers highways in Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery counties and numerous municipalities without police departments.
During this time, extra efforts were made to ensure citizens could safely travel along the Commonwealth’s highways given the increased volume of traffic associated with the holiday.
Through enforcement of motor vehicle laws, the Pennsylvania State Police attempted to reduce speeding, impaired driving and failure to use safety restraints.
