Tallahassee - The Florida Highway Patrol is releasing enforcement totals for the fifth phase of Operation Safe Ride, a 48-hour statewide unlawful speed enforcement operation that was conducted November 22-23, 2005

The Florida Highway Patrol launched the first phase of Operation Safe Ride on February 26-27, 2004. The campaign was created in response to a growing concern over aggressive drivers and incidents of road rage throughout Florida. Operation Safe Ride features varying traffic themes, seeking to not only curb hazardous violations, but to heighten awareness toward the particular theme chosen during each enforcement wave. FHP troopers utilize all available resources to track violators on every interstate, Florida's Turnpike, and other major state roads in Florida where aggressive and hazardous moving violations are prevalent.
