Livingston County Sheriff’s Department issues 13 citations during safety project

Livingston County Sheriff

Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox reports 13 speeding citations were issued to drivers on U. S. Highway 36 during a Community Traffic Safety Project this weekend.

Eleven of those speeding citations were issued Friday, and the other two were issued Sunday.

Cox notes a Nebraska driver cited for speeding Friday was also cited for driving while suspended or revoked. He says many warnings were also issued during the Community Traffic Safety Project, and information was shared to educate drivers.

No drugged or drunk drivers were located, however, Cox reports K-9 Zaki and Deputy Nicolas Leadbetter assisted Deputy Dustin Woelfle at the scene of a traffic stop Saturday. Officers allegedly found a small amount of suspected high-grade THC oil in the vehicle. Zaki did not indicate the odor of other drugs.

Cox says a grant reimbursing Livingston County for overtime on the Community Traffic Safety Project paid for this weekend’s enforcement. The goal of the sheriff’s office is to identify aggressive drivers and/or intoxicated drivers and remove them from the road.
