In a world full of distractions, drivers often forget to pay attention to the road ahead of them. Paying attention, however, is the simplest way to avoid police lights in your rearview mirror and paying a fine.
Sedona Police Department Cmdr. Ron Wheeler said officers watch for suspicious vehicles, and erratic driving while on patrol each day. Many of those who get tickets are distracted by their surroundings, cell phones and other electronic devices.
“When the officers leave the station and they’re not responding to a call for service, we ask them to do some proactive patrols, drive through neighborhoods, and they are assigned a certain section of the city to patrol. In between all that, as they are driving on our streets, we ask them to look for traffic infractions,” Wheeler said.
