Jonesboro Police Warns: Obey The Sign Or Pay The Fine

speed-limit-sign

Beginning Monday, the Jonesboro Police Department will launch a tough new speed enforcement blitz for the city under the tagline: “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine.” The intensified enforcement effort against speeding drivers underscores the severity of the problem both locally and across the nation.

During the “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine” blitz, officers will intensify enforcement of posted speed limits in Jonesboro. We’ll stop and ticket anyone caught speeding—especially in residential and high traffic areas where most of our speed-related crashes occur.

During this enforcement blitz, officers will be out targeting and ticketing speeding drivers. Our goal is to save lives and we’re putting all drivers on alert – the posted speed limit IS THE LAW. When it comes to speeding: “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine.”
