The Florida Highway Patrol launched Operation Checkered Flag Friday in an attempt to reduce the number of fatal crashes along Interstate 95.
The "aggressive traffic enforcement" will focus primarily in Nassau, Duval, St. Johns and Flagler counties starting at 10 a.m. Friday and ending at 6 p.m.
According to FHP, troopers will be looking for drivers speeding, driving aggressively, following too closely and looking for criminal activity.
"The idea is that everybody drives safely," said FHP Capt., Keith Gaston. "I see no violations and I've got 40 guys riding around , that would be the ideal situation."
After the day long crack down on aggressive driving, FHP said their canvas was successful.
Officers handed out 303 citations Friday. 189 of those were speed related.
