“The purpose of this traffic enforcement initiative is to reduce traffic- related deaths and injuries in Florida,” said Col. John Czernis, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. The blitz has been dubbed Operation Safe Ride. “The Florida Highway Patrol will continue a zero tolerance police toward hazardous moving violations, such as speeding and aggressive driving.”
