State Police gearing up for prom and graduation dangers

Posted by wlpo on April 6, 2015

For many high schools, there’s less than two months left in the school year which means its prom and graduation season.

State troopers in La Salle say they will be ramping up patrols during prom and graduation season, focusing on distracted drivers along with drunken drivers and people not wearing seat belts. They’re planning random seat belt enforcement zones on top of extra patrols over the next month or so.

Past numbers show car crashes kill more teens during prom and graduation weekends than any other time of the year.
