BALTIMORE COUNTY - Interstate 95 (I-95) in Maryland is notorious for being a hotbed of dangerous high-speed driving.

To combat unsafe driving and remind residents of the rules of the road, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police conducted a large-scale traffic safety operation on Tuesday morning.

MDTA Police joined their counterparts from Florida to Maine along the I-95 stretch to control dangerous high-speed driving. The objective is to slow down traffic, making work zones safer for everyone, including work crews, drivers, and passengers.

This initiative was part of a more extensive, multi-state traffic safety campaign led by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) under the banner of "Speeding Wrecks Lives." According to MDTA police, officers conducted 159 traffic stops issuing 249 citations, warnings, and repair orders during the event. Police also arrested an individual on an outstanding warrant.

MDTA is planning additional traffic safety initiatives throughout 2023. The MDTA encourages the public to report dangerous driving on Maryland toll roads to the MDTA Police Dispatch at 410-537-7911.
