Police Reaching Out to Drivers

(Lowell, IN) - Drivers are being reminded to give police officers pulled to the side of the road plenty of space.


The reminder is from Indiana State Police at the Lowell Post, which revealed 12 troopers were struck by vehicles last year.   The troopers were either inside or standing outside their vehicles when hit.


Police said eight of the passing motorists were impaired by alcohol or drugs.


According to state police, troopers arrested just over 500 drivers last year for being impaired or 18 less than the previous year.


"In 2023, you will see a renewed focus by the Indiana State Police Lowell Post in combatting impaired Driving. ISP will also be including local police and sheriff departments in our organized blitzes for OWI enforcement," ISP said.
