ALERT: Lorain County Sheriff's Office targeting highways during May prom season

LORAIN COUNTY, Ohio - Drivers in Lorain County will have to take notice of increased patrols on some roads this May.

The Lorain County Sheriff's Office said they will be conducting high-visibility traffic enforcement on weekends during the month, targeting State Route 254, State Routes 301 and 303, as well as State Route 2.

They said they are specifically addressing issues associated with teenage driving during prom season and that deputies will be "aggressively enforcing seat belt and alcohol violations."

Federal and state dollars will make the high visibility enforcement possible. Lorain County said they received $46,627 to be used for the blitzes during the 2012 holiday season and 2013.

They said these areas were selected due to incidents of alcohol and accident-related violations.
