The Connecticut State Police beefed up their presence on the state’s roadways during this year’s holiday season, and the results are in. Here’s the state police tale of the tape for the period from Dec. 20 to midnight on New Year’s Day, according to state police Lt. J. Paul Vance:

  • 1,040 hazardous moving citations
  • 560 speeding citations
  • 84 accidents investigated
  • 18 accidents with injuries
  • 18 DUIs
  • 16 seatbelt citations
  • 0 fatal accidents

I'm more interested in how Hamden Police did on all their holiday checkpoints other than a pot bust. I know all that funding came from the State, but it's still taxpayer money, and i suspect it was a lot for a State claiming to be broke. I think some serious justification in terms of productivity is needed. Otherwise, it seems to be an unnegotiated holiday bonus.
