Traffic blitz planned on Fargo’s 45th Street

Fargo police will conduct a traffic safety blitz this morning in the construction area of 45th Street and Interstate 94.

The blitz is part of the Click It or Ticket campaign taking place through June 6.

Officers will be enforcing speed violations as a primary reason for traffic stop, and enforcing seat-belt violations in the process.

Police are announcing the location to help deter drivers from speeding through the construction area. Speeding in a construction zone with workers present carries a minimum fine of $80, and an adult seat-belt violation carries a fine of $20.

Officers conducted similar blitzes earlier this week resulting in 178 citations, 63 of which were for seat-belt violations.
