Sheriff’s Office plans holiday blitz

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office has announced an upcoming traffic enforcement blitz. This blitz, designated Winter Holiday Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over Blitz, will run from Dec. 17 through Jan. 1.

Deputies will be working various hours and locations around Fulton County and they will be looking for impaired drivers and violations associated with impaired driving.

The blitzes are being funded from a grant that was awarded to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office from the Ohio Department of Public Safety. The grant pays for extra patrol to enforce the traffic laws that will increase the safety of motorists on the roadways in the areas that are prone to a higher number of serious and fatal crashes.
