07/21/17  This Weekend Law Enforcement Will Focus On Speeders


This weekend law enforcement officers in Arkansas and five other states will concentrate their patrol assignments on speeding violations. “Obey the sign or Pay the Fine” is a multijurisdictional enforcement operation plan designed to crack down on speeding offenses and make highway travel safer. Dallas County Sheriff Stan McGahee says his department will be participating and will enforce the law.

The Regional Administrator for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Susan DeCourcy agrees. She said speeding translates into death on our highways, it greatly reduces a driver's ability to steer safely around another vehicle, a hazardous object in the road or an unexpected curve. When it comes to speeding there are no excuses..”Obey the sign or Pay the Fine”. As Sheriff Stan McGahee said, ”no tolerance”. Colonel Bill Bryant of the State Police said, ”we'll stop and ticket anyone caught speeding.”
