Traffic blitz nets 22 citations

Sheriff Roy E. Miller announced that the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office conducted a Traffic Enforcement Blitz, designated, Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over Blitz, which ran from Aug 19 through Sept. 5.

Deputies who worked this Blitz made 91 traffic stops and issued 22 citations. The citations issued were for 21 speed violations and 1 no operator’s license.

Deputies also issued 73 warnings during the Blitz. The Traffic Enforcement Blitzes are paid for from a grant that the Sheriff’s Office received from the Ohio Department of Public Safety.

This grant allows extra patrol to enforce the traffic laws that will increase the safety of motorists on the roadway in the areas that are prone to a higher number of serious and fatal crashes.
