On November 16, 2020 members of the Traffic Safety Section of the Anne Arundel County Police Department, along with officers from the four police districts, conducted a high intensity distracted driving and occupant protection enforcement detail on several major roadways within the County. This targeted enforcement is in support of the Maryland Highway Safety Office program called ‘Operation Border to Border’. Officers worked areas that bordered other jurisdictions who were also participating in the program. Areas worked in Anne Arundel County included Fort Smallwood Road near the Baltimore City line, Route 198 and the Prince George’s County line, Route 175 and the Howard County line, Route 4 between the Calvert and Prince George’s County lines, Route 3 at the Prince Georges County line and Ritchie Highway near the Baltimore City line.

Utilizing marked and unmarked vehicles in the four hour detail, officers made 77 traffic stops and issued 39 citations and 67 warnings for various offenses ranging from cell phone usage, speeding, failing to obey traffic control devices, seat belts, move over law violations and driver’s license restriction violations. There were also nine arrests made for a combination of driving while suspended violations, unlicensed drivers and uninsured motor vehicles. Two commercial vehicles were stopped for cell phone violations and one commercial vehicle was inspected by a federally certified inspector and placed out of service for due to inferior brakes. This enforcement is a continuation of directed enforcement and educational patrols conducted on various county roadways as a result of an increase in serious and fatal crashes.

Additional enforcement waves will be conducted on various county roadways focused on deterring aggressive, distracted driving and occupant protection. Citizens observing any vehicles operated in a careless or reckless manner are asked to contact the police department by calling 911 or the non-emergency number 410-222-8610.
