Spreading the word
Troop C took an aggressive approach to making Florida’s highways safer by recruiting members of the local Tampa Bay media to help spread the word. ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, and the 24 hour a day news network; Bay News 9 recently ran live shots and stories related to the FHP’s commitment to highway safety.
On hand were numerous members of the Tampa District, along with Troop C’s pilot, Sgt. Mike Cendan who conducted a laser detail on I-4. The camera crews were there filming the action as Sgt. Cendan continued to call out violations ranging from 15 to as high as 30 miles per hour over the speed limit.
The Florida Highway Patrol and the members of the local TV media will continue to remind motorist to buckle up, obey the speed limit, and don’t drink and drive – together we can make a difference!
