Clarksville police are increasing patrols and cracking down on speeders on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard.

The highway is the second busiest in Montgomery County and is second in the number of accidents, behind Ft. Campbell Boulevard.

According to police records, there have been 77 accidents on Wilma Rudolph since January 1.

Clarksville police have posted electronic signs reminding drivers of the 45 mile-per-hour speed limit. A few hundred feet from those signs, another displays how fast the cars are traveling.

Police are also looking for drivers who are texting while they drive.

In previous periods of enhanced surveillance, police issued citations for improper child restraint, illegal window tinting, revoked or suspended license, no proof of insurance and multiple citations for not wearing seatbelts.

The enhanced enforcement effort on Wilma Rudolph Blvd runs from College Street to the Interstate 24 exchange.

Police say the additional patrols and signage will go through the end of March.
