Deputies slowing down drivers Comments 0 | Recommend 0 April 6, 2009 - 6:17 PM Allison Bybee Spring Break now in full swing in Martin County, and deputies want to make sure your children and you are safe on the roads. Monday, High in the sky they are watching for speeders. Martin County Sheriff's Deputy Buford Burke sat in a tree stand high above U.S. 1. He was helping to catch speeders. While he's in the tree stand, Deputy Joe Deckard was on the road. When Burke spots a speeder, Deputy Deckard goes after then trying to slow them down, "It's just to educate the public with traffic safety and prevent accidents." One woman was clocked going 61 miles per hour in a 45. She says, "I think they should catch the offenders. I wasn't speeding. We are not the offenders we are on our way to the hospital." She was given a warning, but cited for expired insurance. Sgt. James Foster monitored Monday's enforcement, and says all of this is for you, "We figure we'd do it over Spring Break and try to stop these kids and get them to slow it down." All in all it was a slow day. A good thing for law enforcement and a great thing for you. Deputies will be out all week in Martin County. Mainly offering warnings, some tickets will be issued.
