Several dozen black Chevy Tahoes will be dispatched over the next month by Arkansas State Police to apprehend both aggressive and districted drivers. So far this year, data show that troopers have stopped more than 2300 drivers traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour, what they describe as a new and alarming trend. Troopers in Tahoes will also be monitoring for distracted drivers, as well as ticketing those crusing in left-hand passing lanes, prohibited under a new state law.

As soon as Arkansas's new enhanced concealed gun carry law went into effect on Sept. 1, the Arkansas State Police set about revising the state's conventional concealed handgun carry permit rules, first issued in 2009. The new guidelines are being drafted by the state police in accordance with new laws passed earlier this year allowing guns on public college campuses and other prohibited places. Arkansas is among an estimated ten states with such laws on the books.
