Indiana State Police stepping up patrols

INDIANAPOLIS (WAVE) – Indiana State Police are prepared to deal with a little "March Madness" of their own.

Over the next 17 days, which includes the start of a NCAA Tournament and Saint Patrick's Day, Troopers will lead Operation Pullover Blitz 70.

The blitz will target impaired and dangerous drivers using extra patrols in both marked and unmarked cars.

Over the same period last year, 38 people died on Indiana roadways, 20 percent of the drivers were drunk or impaired.
