According to spokesman David Procopio, speeding appeared to be the most prominent violation.  He said another drunk driver will be summonsed into court after suffering a serious injury in a wrong-way crash on the Braga Bridge.

State Police first instituted the patrols on 24 and 195 during the summer time, and vowed to continue them on holiday weekends.
