In addition to those citations, a police department release states, three drivers were cited for speeding in a school zone, one was cited for illegally passing a stopped school bus, and one was cited for disobeying a stop sign.
Both marked and unmarked police cars were used during the crackdown that ran throughout the month of September. The department dedicated more than 24 hours total to the effort meant to, according to the release, "[increase] driver awareness of cell phone prohibitions in school zones, school zone speed limits, stop sign obedience, and other traffic and parking violations that inhibit the safety of pedestrians and other motorists."
The department says going forward additional enforcement efforts will target drivers who are not yielding to pedestrians within crosswalks.
