The Livingston County Sheriff’s office will soon join Ford County police authorities in cracking down on distracted driving and speeding to combat the increasing fatal accidents in the county.
Livingston County Sheriff Tony Childress issued a statement to the public expressing concern regarding the recent fatal accidents and accidents involving severe injury on roadways in and around the Livingston County area.
Ford County Sheriff Mark Doran issued a similar statement last week.
Childress and Doran agree, saying speeding and distracted driving have played a very large role in most of these crashes. They’re urging the public to do their part to protect themselves, family, and others by not being distracted while driving.
The sheriffs’ would like to inform all citizens and to those traveling through the county that they will be directing the deputies to pick one day out of their week to primarily work traffic enforcement.
During this day of the week, unless they are on a call for service, the deputies will be on the roadways targeting excessive speed and distracted driving.
