Clovis Police Crack Down On Law Breaking Drivers

July 21, 2008 8:19:28 PM PDT
Clovis Police are saturating the streets with eyes on enforcing a number of laws. Officer Mark Bradford has his eye on speeders. Within 15 minutes patrolling, he spots a motorcyclist going too fast. 57 in a 45 mile per hour speed zone. Officer Bradford tickets 19-year-old Joel Mevis. Officer Bradford asked Mevis, "How fast do you think you were going?" Mevis answered, "I thought I was doing 50 and I'm sorry." A $400,000 state grant is helping Clovis Police saturate the streets with officers looking for speeders, those not wearing seat belts and people on their cell phones. Bradford said, "The cell phone users, just beware ... No texting make sure you have that hands free device because we will also be looking for those."

Earlier on Monday, officers staked out the Clovis Courthouse waiting for people who drive with a suspended license. Officer Richard Collins said, "If they're driving on a suspended license and we do stop you and find out your license is suspended we will tow your car and remove it from the roadway." But investigators found no violators and moved-on to patrolling for speeders.

Clovis police say they're always on a patrol just this week they will be paying extra attention.
