High Visibility Enforcement
Throughout the month of June, the Athens County Sheriff’s Office will work in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Public Safety, Ohio Traffic Safety Office, and surrounding jurisdictions to conduct traffic enforcement. This enforcement began on June 1, 2020 and will continue through June 30, 2020. During this time, deputies will aggressively seek impaired and distracted drivers – those who put themselves and others at risk on the roadway.
The Posted Speed Limit IS THE LAW. Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine.
Many Americans believe they won’t be ticketed if they drive within a “buffer zone” above the posted speed limit. But now law enforcement will be targeting and ticketing speeding drivers. When it comes to speeding: Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine – the posted speed limit IS THE LAW.
The Athens County Sheriff’s Office continues to work together with the community to make Athens County a safer, more enjoyable place to work, live, and play.
