PCSO Traffic Unit Encourages Safe Driving This Holiday Season

In an effort to encourage motorist safety during the holiday season, the Polk County Sheriff's Office Traffic Unit will be out in force county-wide.  From now until the new year, traffic deputies will be focused primarily on aggressive drivers, and those driving while under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Sheriff Crow reminds citizens to practice safety and be diligent this holiday season, especially when driving.  The Sheriff also advises: “If you choose to drink, please drink responsibly, and ride with a designated driver.  Let's all have a safe and happy holiday season.”

For more information about the PCSO Traffic Unit, please contact Sgt. Mike Green at 863.534.0980.
