From June through August, Behringer will spearhead an "Alive on 95" initiative to increase Brevard interstate enforcement a couple days a week, in conjunction with the Florida Highway Patrol and municipal police.

The idea sprang from the similar, six-state "Staying Alive on 75" campaign, which extends along Interstate 75 from Naples northward into Michigan. Behringer plans to compare Brevard crash statistics with last summer's corresponding dates to gauge "Alive on 95" impact.

"The more visible we are in an area, the more likely that the motoring public will adhere to the traffic laws," Behringer said.
