The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office recently utilized Missouri Traffic Safety Grants to protect the county citizens and motorists.
Sheriff Steve Cox said two deputies were assigned to focus on Highways 36, 65 and 190 for enforcement of any and all hazardous moving violations.
A total of ten vehicles were stopped that included two speeding citations, three arrests made including driving while suspended/revoked and two for drug law violations. Officers also issued six traffic offense warnings.
Sheriff Cox stated the vast majority of serious traffic offense violations on 36 and 65 are from motorists not from the local area and passing through. He said this creates more of a risk with drivers that are unfamiliar with intersections, driveways and other busy points in the county.
All fine money the court collects on moving traffic violations is divided among the public schools serving Livingston County Students.
