Fargo police issue 45 citations during blitz

Forty-five citations were issued Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on 45th Street over the Interstate 94 bridge by Fargo police on the third day of a traffic safety blitz.

Of the 45 citations, 31 were speed related. Five drivers were cited for seat-belt violations, four were cited for driving under suspension, and five were cited for miscellaneous violations.

Police planned the blitzes Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to help reduce traffic speeds in the area where construction workers are attempting to complete the large construction project. In the three days of traffic blitzes, 113 citations were issued. Of those citations, 83 were speed related.
