RENO — The speed enforcement campaign done by local law enforcement yielded a total of 368 speeding citations, with a total of 729 actual traffic stops from Feb. 27 to March 20. Of the 729 traffic stops, deputies issued 262 verbal warnings merely educating the public of the dangers of traveling in excess of the posted speed limit.

Deputies with the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office were able to complete this enforcement campaign with funds awarded by a grant made possible by the Department of Public Safety’s Office of Traffic Safety.

The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Reno Police Department and Sparks Police Department, conducted this speed enforcement campaign.  Each law enforcement agency was responsible for their individual statistics. These numbers are solely the figures from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division.
