SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Authorities wrote 184 citations during last week’s school zone enforcement patrol.
Sioux Falls Police Lieutenant Jerry Miller says 144 cites were for speeding. Miller says there were 45 no insurance and 35 seat belt citations.
Miller says that just because the school zone enforcement patrol is over, doesn't mean there aren't officers working Sioux Falls school zones. He reminds drivers to pay attention to their speed and driving habits around schools
Miller says Sioux Falls Police, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and the South Dakota Highway Patrol were part of the effort.
A sobriety checkpoint on I-229 at Minesota Avenue resulted in 25 DUI arrests late Friday night into Saturday morning.
Miller says the Highway Patrol, Sioux Falls Police and the Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office conducted the checkpoint. He says it was part of the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" National campaign.
