Speed enforcement project today on state Route 8
Beacon Journal staff report

Don't speed on state Route 8 today -- or violate any other traffic laws, for that matter.

The Summit County DUI Task Force, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Akron, Boston Heights and Hudson police forces will conduct a speed enforcement detail along the highway from the central interchange to Interstate 271 to nab reckless drivers.

There have been 17 crash-related deaths in Summit County so far this year, compared with 28 at the same time last year.
