Governor Wolf Reminds Drivers To Be Safe This Holiday Weekend

first_img Press Release,  PSA,  Public Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today reminded Pennsylvania drivers to avoid dangerous decisions over the long Memorial Day holiday weekend, as Pennsylvania State Police will increase enforcement coverage for drivers under the influence.“This Memorial Day weekend should be about remembering those who sacrificed their lives for our country and enjoying a long, safe weekend with family, friends and neighbors,” Governor Wolf said. “There is no room this weekend for driving under the influence, not wearing a seatbelt or other reckless behavior that puts yourself and fellow Pennsylvanians in danger. If you’re going out and drinking, there’s no excuse: find a ride home or designate a sober driver.”“The Pennsylvania State Police will have extra troopers on the roads this weekend and, along with local law enforcement, will be checking to make sure drivers are sober and wearing a seatbelt.”State Police troopers will be focused on stopping impaired driving and ensuring proper seatbelt use. In conjunction with “Click it or Ticket”, law enforcement will be taking a zero tolerance approach when it comes to buckling up.Troopers will be on the lookout for speeding, tailgating, and other unsafe driving habits on interstates, highways, and local roads. State and local law enforcement will hold DUI checkpoints and patrols throughout the weekend.Drivers can take advantage of the SaferRide app to plan their ride home before they go out. The app, available for free download on Android and Apple devices, is a great option to facilitate a safe ride home after you’ve been drinking. Once the app is downloaded, you can use it to call a taxi or a friend by identifying your location so you can be picked up.The national “Click It or Ticket” campaign occurs May 23 – June 5, 2016. The Department will be conducting high visibility enforcement and, as part of this campaign, Department members certified as Child Passenger Safety (CPS) technicians will be conducting free car seat fitting stations.At these fitting stations, caregivers can have their car seats checked for suitability and can receive instruction in the proper installation of car seats and harnessing of children in those seats.

Grassley discusses concerns about sanctuary cities

first_imgWASHINGTON — Iowa U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley is taking part in a Judiciary Committee hearing today on so-called sanctuary cities and their impact on public safety.Iowa banned sanctuary cities and counties with passage of a state law last year that revokes state funding to places that violate federal immigration law. Still, Grassley says sanctuary jurisdictions are a worry in Iowa — and across the country.Grassley says, “There may be law outlawing it in Iowa, but I think you’re going to find a lot of sheriffs in Iowa cautious about how they handle requests from the federal government.” He’s quick to point out that action — or inaction — by Iowa law officers isn’t based on their personal politics, but more on fear of litigation.Grassley says, “We’ve had organizations that go to court, let’s say they might be something like the ACLU as an example, threatening lawsuits if sheriffs cooperated with ICE and other immigration officials.” While Iowa City has pronounced itself as a safe haven to people who are in the U.S. illegally, city leaders have not designated the community as a formal sanctuary. The Iowa City city council vowed not to commit local resources to enforcing federal immigration law, which prompted passage of the 2018 state law against sanctuaries.Grassley says sanctuary proclamations elsewhere continue to be a concern. “You have an instance I think last week, the governor of California got somebody out of prison through his executive powers,” Grassley says. “He did it for the sole purpose so they wouldn’t be extradited and put out of our country.”Under the Iowa law, which took effect on July 1st of 2018, cities and counties are forbidden from prohibiting or discouraging law enforcement officers or other employees from “assisting or cooperating with a federal immigration officer as reasonable or necessary, including providing enforcement assistance.”last_img read more
