Law enforcement organizations throughout Indiana are taking part in the annual Safe Family Travel, Operation Pull Over campaign. The campaign bnegan over the weekend and runs through Dec. 6. Indiana State Police will be conducting high visibility enforcement efforts including sobriety check points and saturation patrols looking for impaired drivers and unrestrained motorists.
