 Multi-Agency effort stops 116 drivers in just 4 hours

On Wednesday, March 8th, 2023, officers from the Prescott Police Department, Prescott Valley Police Department, Arizona Department of Public Safety, Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, and the Chino Valley Police Department conducted a speed enforcement detail from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. focusing on Willow Creek Road, Pioneer Parkway, Williamson Valley Road, and State Route 89. 

Officers from the above agencies stopped 116 vehicles which resulted in:

  • 70 citations for speeding
  • 30 citations for other various violations
  • 4 criminal citations for excessive speed 
  • 30 warnings  

The most egregious speeds included 80mph in a 45mph zone and multiple 70mph in 45mph zones.

The law enforcement agencies in the quad city area will continue traffic enforcement details throughout the coming months to slow traffic down and help reduce serious traffic crashes.

We would like to remind motorists that highway safety is the responsibility of every driver.  If you observe erratic driving behavior, please contact law enforcement immediately.

This detail was made possible through grant funding provided by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.
