Virginia State Police Increase Patrols on I-64

Virginia State Police have increased their presence on I-64. The increase comes during the summer highway construction season. In Charlottesville and Albemarle County, several highway construction projects are ongoing. Increased patrols are designed to lower injury rates through lower highway speeds. Statistics show that every 10 mile per hour increase in highway traffic speeds results in a 7 percent increase in injuries. Injuries also tend to be more severe as the crashes involve greater speeds. As an injury law firm, we are particularly aware of the impact of high speed collisions and the tragedy that results. Hopefully, the visibility of state troopers will have the desired effect.
