Maryland State Police Continue Focus on Haystack Mountain

November 26th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

For the third straight week, Maryland state troopers continued their focused enforcement efforts on I-68 in the Haystack Mountain area as part of the state’s coordinated response to reduce traffic crashes in the region, especially those involving commercial vehicles.

Troopers from the Cumberland Barrack conducted speed enforcement on both sides of I-68 in the areas approaching Haystack.   During the week of November 17, barrack troopers initiated 180 traffic stops for speeding and other violations.  In addition, troopers assigned to the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division (CVED) at Finzel, initiated 27 stops on commercial vehicles for traffic violations in conjunction with completing 27 inspections.  This resulted in placing 3 commercial motor vehicles out of service. 

Mayland state troopers are committed to the safety of all those traveling on our highways in any part of our state.  Troopers from the Cumberland Barrack are deployed to areas where crash and traffic stop data indicate enforcement is needed most.  Enforcement focus will continue on I-68 in the area of Haystack Mountain for the indefinite future.
