Billings continues road safety campaigns staff
Updated: 2015-07-20 10:24:06
The Billings Police Department has been participating in a year-long Hazardous Moving Vehicle enforcement and a Driving While Impaired enforcement through grants provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA. These grants provided funding for officers to work over and above the hours they normally work allowing for increased focus on offenders.

During the Hazardous Moving Vehicle enforcement period of April 1st – July 14th, 2015, officers apprehended two fugitives. Officers also issued the following tickets to motorists: Seven speeding tickets, two suspended/revoked drivers tickets, one no insurance ticket and three other non-moving violation tickets. Officers gave motorists 59 verbal warnings during this enforcement reminding them to stay safe.

During the special Driving While Impaired enforcement officers made one arrest for driving while impaired. Officers also issued the following tickets to motorists: Eight speeding tickets, three suspended/revoked driver tickets, one no operator license ticket, five no insurance tickets and nine other non-moving violation tickets. Officers also gave motorists 74 verbal warnings.

“My Officers will continue to work hard to reduce hazardous driving injuries and fatalities,” stated Lt. Karl Cuschieri. “The majority of motor vehicle collisions are a result of hazardous driving on one or both drivers’ parts. This means hazardous driving and thus motor vehicle collisions are something that can be prevented.”
