Franklin County Deputies are looking for you...if you're speeding!

Franklin County Deputies are out and about on extra patrols looking for lead-footed drivers. The extra patrols have been requested by citizens in various areas throughout the county so be aware that extra patrols could mean a ticket for you if you are caught speeding.

According to statistics provided by the Franklin County Sheriff's Department, speeding endangers everyone on the road and contributed to over 26% of all traffic fatalities in Washington State in 2017 alone.

Speeding also reduces the effectiveness of the occupant protection equipment in a crash, increases stopping distances when a driver perceives danger and increases the degree of the severity in a crash.

Franklin County Deputies are on extra patrols, so be alert and prepared and slow down.
