May 27, 2014

In an effort to reduce traffic crashes and injuries on U.S.10 between Ludington and Scottville local law enforcement placed extra patrols along that stretch of highway this past weekend.

Agencies participating included Michigan State Police, Mason County Sheriff’s Office and Ludington Police Department.

Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole reported that during a four hour block of high traffic volumes officers made 59 traffic stops, issued 30 citations, gave 40 verbal warnings and made three misdemeanor arrests, one fugitive and one felony (operating while intoxicated, third offense) arrest.

“Enforcement, coupled with attentive drivers and media blitzes, we are happy to report ZERO traffic crashes once again this year on U.S. 10 in Amber and Pere Marquette townships,” Cole said.
