More than 400 drivers were cited for various traffic offenses in a five-day crackdown on aggressive drivers on Interstate 95 in Miami-Dade County.
The Florida Highway Patrol saturated the county's 16-mile stretch of I-95 with nearly five times as many troopers from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Troopers cited 77 for speeding, three for aggressive driving and 32 for violating traffic control devices such as cutting through the poles that separate the express lanes from the free lanes. A few were clocked at 100 mph.
"It was very successful. We wrote a lot of tickets," said Trooper Joe Sanchez, spokesman for the patrol in Miami-Dade. "Anytime we can reduce speed and accidents on I-95, we have accomplished something."
Drivers can expect to see more crackdowns on I-95 in Miami-Dade in the future, Sanchez said.
