Savannah Police Cracking Down on Traffic Violators
Beginning Monday, August 13, police in Savannah-Chatham County launched a “90-day blitz” to crack down on traffic violators in response to a larger-than-usual amount of serious crashes lately. Police Chief Willie Lovett has ordered all of his marked patrol cars to place a particular focus on traffic law breakers and to issue citations when needed.
Lt. Greg Mitchell, commander of the department’s traffic division, said that the officers will spend at least an hour of every shift specifically looking for traffic violators.
While there have only been six traffic deaths reported this year, the alarming rate of recent serious crashes shows cause for paying special attention to traffic violators. Be sure to do you part in following all traffic laws to improve safety on our roads and to avoid facing major penalties.
