MCSO announced increased traffic enforcement for holiday weekend

39

MIAMI COUNTY – The Miami County Sheriff’s Office will be deploying extra deputies beginning July 4th through the weekend for increased traffic enforcement. The primary focus will be on removing impaired drivers and enforcing other crash-causing violations. Statistically, the 4th of July holiday period is one of the deadliest on our nation’s roadways with impaired driving playing a large factor in many of the crashes. Deputies will be targeting Miami County roadways with high incidents of crashes and OVI arrests.

The extra enforcement efforts are being funded through a grant the Sheriff’s Office received late last year from the Ohio Traffic Safety Office. The grant also pays for some fuel costs. I and my staff wish all county residents a safe and happy Independence Day.
