Ala., Miss., and Tenn. Team up For Traffic Safety Crackdown

UNDATED, Ala. (AP) - There will be more law enforcement officers on the road starting Monday.

Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee have joined forces to reduce the number of traffic fatalities.

It's the first time the three states have teamed up for a "Take Back Our Highways" campaign. Alabama launched a similar initiative in August that resulted in 26,000 citations and arrests.

Troopers along with county and city police agencies will be on the lookout for drivers who are committing both flagrant and minor traffic offenses, including speeding, DUI, tailgating, failure to yield right of way and driver inattention.

The "Take Back Our Highways" program will run through November 25th.
