Just about everyone who has driven through DFW on I-35 has experienced sitting in long stretches of traffic due to an accident. Known to many as the “Bermuda Triangle,” due to the large number of accidents, the stretch of highway has become one of the most dangerous in the country. However, local police departments have decided to do something about it, launching a high-visibility, coordinated enforcement in hopes of reducing accidents.

Starting this week, police departments from Lake Dallas, Corinth and Hickory Creek will have a high number of patrol vehicles watching over I-35. Lewisville and Denton police departments will participate as well with the help of the Texas Department of Public Safety. The hope is that a large police presence will reduce speeding and potential hazardous driving.

“We had 622 accidents just on our two-mile stretch of the interstate last year. That's a lot of accidents," said Chief Jerry Garner of Corinth Police Department. According to WFAA, police will set up speed traps to get people to slow down. Hopefully this helps prevent accidents without too many driving away with speeding tickets.
