The Massachusetts State Police say the 10-week patrol surge on routes 24 and 195 resulted in more than 2,800 citations issued and 170 arrrests.

The increased patrols on the two highways was the result of aggressive driving, and severe crashes.

"Troopers from the State Police Middleboro and Dartmouth Barracks conducted a pro-active patrol campaign aimed at identifying and arresting impaired operators, deterring aggressive and distracted drivers and promoting roadway safety on Rte 24 and Interstate 195," the State Police said in a release.

The total cost of the increased patrol is $124,755.91 for 1,825 man-hours.

Here are the State Police statistics from the initiative:

  • OUI Arrests: 90
  • Felony Arrests: 3
  • Other Arrests: 80
  • Criminal Summons: 75
  • Total number of Citations Issued: 2, 810
  • Number of Speeding Citations Issued: 1,448
  • Number of Seat Belt Citations issued: 320
