Summer heat for speeders halfway over
Ruston Chief Randal Hermes said officers with his department have issued 159 tickets during the first half of this campaign.
“We schedule these activities as an extra-duty detail when the officers are available,” Hermes said. “So, the hours and the locations are random.”
Of the 159 tickets issued, 104 were given to female drivers.
Hermes said the department also has access to a traffic counting device that is capable of keeping up with the number of vehicles that pass a particular spot as well as how fast the vehicle is traveling.
