Police Roving Patrols Issue Many Violations To Motorists 

Police report the roving patrols that they conducted during the Memorial Day holiday weekend designed to find impaired drivers and other traffic offenders resulted in many vehicular violations being issued to motorists.

Police Patrol Sergeant John Cole said that the roving patrols resulted in the arrests of two motorists on charges of driving under the influence.

Also, police issued speeding infractions to 28 drivers. They charged one motorist with illegal use of a handheld cellphone while driving. Nine motorists received infractions for violating stop signs.

Also, four drivers received infractions for vehicular equipment violations. Police also made 21 warnings to motorists for various motor vehicle violations, according to Sgt Cole.

The high-visibility roving patrols are conducted to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities stemming from accidents caused by drunken or drugged driving.

Three-quarters of the police overtime costs for such roving patrols are covered by federal traffic safety grant funds.
