A spokesman for the Cheyenne Police Department says that agency issued a total of 803 traffic citations during a special high-visibility traffic enforcement effort in May.

Officer Dan Long says that total includes 109 speeding tickets, in addition to 35 citations for speeding in a school zone and another 19 for speeding in a construction zone. Another 75 were issued for seat belt violations, 47 were written for cell phone violations and a total of 518 were issued for miscellaneous traffic offenses.

Long says the miscellaneous category includes everything from citations for no proof of insurance or no drivers license to running a red light or making illegal turns. He  says the effort was paid for with a federal grant and focused on occupant safety violations–especially seat belt infractions–and traffic violations in construction zones.

Police spent 24 man-hours in enforcing traffic violations in the area of Converse and 19th Street, where work on a new roundabout is underway.  Long says the department typically undertakes about 5 special traffic enforcement efforts a year and will probably have another one in the next few months.
