The Virginia State Police stopped thousands of speeders and reckless drivers during a two-day enforcement effort on Interstates 81 and 95, according to WCYB, an ABC news affiliate.

The weekend initiative, dubbed “Operation Air, Land and Speed,” caught 3,536 speeders, 717 reckless drivers and 20 drunk drivers. The operation rung up just over 7,000 summonses and arrests in total.

This was the 13th time a weekend enforcement effort has been conducted on the two interstates since “Operation Air, Land and Speed” launched in 2006.
