SC police to target stop light, sign violators
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Police in South Charleston will be looking for drivers who run through red lights or stop signs throughout August.
South Charleston Police Cpl. D.C. Johnson said about 20 officers will receive grant-funded overtime to patrol problematic intersections throughout the city.
Red light and stop sign violations are the leading cause of crashes in West Virginia, he said. Anyone caught entering or crossing an intersection with a red light or stop sign will be cited.
The Governor's Highway Safety "Target Red Campaign" will run throughout the month.
