Sheriff announces holiday traffic blitz

Sheriff Roy E. Miller announced that the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a Traffic Enforcement Blitz called Thanksgiving Blitz. It will run from Wednesday through Sunday. Deputies will be working various hours and locations around Fulton County and will be looking for distracted driving, seatbelt, speed, and impaired driving violations.

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.
