Using grant money from the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services the Erie County Sheriff’s Office is scheduling extra deputies to work traffic from Feb. 1 to Feb. 3.
Those deputies will focus on rooting out drunken drivers, speeders and motorists not wearing seat belts.
Patrols will concentrate on Ohio 4, U.S. 250, Ohio 61 and Ohio 60.
“It is hoped that these efforts will result in a safer trip for those traveling during what is usually a busy time period on area road ways,” an Erie County press release said.
In December, deputies used grant money to make 19 extra stops.
