The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office has announced that they plan to conduct a high visibility traffic blitz in conjunction with the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over national campaign.
The blitz begins today and runs through Sept. 1. The sheriff’s office will be working this blitz at various times and locations in Fulton County, where they say deputies will primarily be looking for impaired driving violations.
The blitz is 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.
