Local Law Enforcement to Step Up Patrols in March

From Local Sources 

AREA WIDE -- Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine.

That word today from the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department as extra patrols have begun across the state.

They’re looking for speeders, those following too closely, aggressive drivers and those who disregard traffic signals or signs.

The overtime patrols are being funded by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration grants.

Extra patrols have become a common sight in March as there is typically an increase in driving violations with March Madness and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
