Stark County Sheriff's Office to do additional traffic enforcement in April

R-C Staff report Published:

The Stark County Sheriff's Office will be doing additional enforcement of speed, impaired driving and seatbelt laws in the month of April, Sheriff George Maier announced.

The sheriff's office will have increased enforcement and patrol throughout Stark County during this period and "strictly enforce the laws concerning speed, impaired driving and restraint use."

In Stark County in 2013, over 46 percent of fatal traffic crashes were alcohol and/or drug related. "Seat belts are the most effective lifesaving feature in a vehicle and can be your best protection against serious injury or death in a crash caused by an impaired driver," according to Maier.

The sheriff's office received a grant through the Ohio Department of Public Safety's Ohio Traffic Safety Office, which provided the additional funding for enforcement.

  • No, your not kidding... Your ongoing plethora of anti law enforcement comments proves it and is becoming more than boring.. Pick another topic to troll for Christ sake!!

  • 46 percent of fatal accidents are alcohol/drug related. That leaves 54 percent of the fatalities caused by sober people. Seems like the drunks and druggies are safer drivers. We need sober driver check points. Just kidding
