The Maryland State Police announced May 26 that its troopers' traffic enforcement efforts during the four-day Memorial Day weekend resulted in more than 9,500 vehicles stopped, with approximately 6,843 traffic citations and approximately 4,764 warnings issued. They arrested 99 motorists for impaired driving, 28 people for various drug offenses, and 72 others for criminal violations.

There were two stepped-up operations in place: Operation SHOWBOAT, focused on Route 50 from Anne Arundel County to Ocean City, Route 301 in Kent and Queen Anne's counties, and Route 13 in Wicomico, Somerset, and Worcester Counties. These are busy routes during the summer's first holiday weekend, and the operation resulted in 691 speeding citations and 91 additional citations for other violations, such as seat belt and cell phone infractions. Operation Millipede was in place along I-95 and resulted in 125 speeding, 29 cell phone, 10 texting, and 41 seat belt citations, as well as 148 other citations.

Maryland State Police plans to continue these initiatives in support of the Maryland Highway Safety Office's "Move Toward Zero Deaths" campaign.
