School Zone Speeders Targeted By Sheriff

By From Staff And Wire Reports

Drivers who speed through school zones and nearby residential neighborhoods are being targeted by the sheriff’s department traffic unit.

A special emphasis patrol was organized in response to complaints from school officials, residents and other motorists about speeding and other traffic violations committed near Spokane County schools.

The emphasis patrol, begun this week, will continue through next Friday.

“We’re targeting not just the high schools, but elementary and middle schools as well,” Cpl. Earl Howerton said.

Howerton said “scores of tickets” were issued this week by the deputies, who are being assisted by members of the sheriff’s Explorers and Reserve Units.

“We have people working from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., and are also targeting routes frequently driven by students through residential areas,” Howerton said.
