Speed top violation in holiday detail
The Cottonwood Police Department and the Arizona Department of Public Safety Friday conducted a joint speed enforcement detail on SR 260 in Cottonwood. Five officers participated and the results included 47 speeding citations, one child restraint violation, one driver arrested for Extreme DUI, and one driver arrested for driving with a suspended license.
According to Sergeant Tod Moore of the Cottonwood PD, "The importance of maintaining proper speed was shown when a DPS officer was about to stop a vehicle for speeding and instead saw the vehicle lose control and strike the guardrail."
Funding for this detail was provided by a grant from the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety. The Cottonwood Police Department and the Arizona Department of Public Safety remind drivers to slow down and arrive alive through this Holiday Season.
