Eight citations issued during blitz

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic enforcement blitz that ran from Nov. 16-29, designated Thanksgiving Blitz.

Deputies who worked this blitz made 23 traffic stops and issued 8 citations. The citations issued were for 7 speed violations, and 1 No Operator’s License violation. Deputies also issued 16 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.
