Law of the Month
Each month, the State Patrol decides on one traffic enforcement law to focus on. This focus is meant to remind the public about the importance of various traffic laws. In September, the highlighted laws centered around back to school safety, such as stopping for school buses and yielding to pedestrians and bicyclists on their way to school.
