Comments

  1. It looks like they’ve ramped up the traffic stops to try to fund those expensive studies, new cars, and re-furbished guns they need!

  2. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, never speed during a recession

  3. clarke conservative says:

    We have got to do something to counter-balance all the sales tax dollars sent to Winchester and Frederick County.

    • Justsayn says:

      and whose fault is it when just about 99.5% of the population in Clarke chooses to go to Frederick County to buy their goods. Oh that’s right we don’t have a choice.

  4. Nice to have this feature back. Thanks, CDN!

  5. Stonebroke says:

    Back in the day, you never seen a County Mounty pulling anyone over for speeding! That is some mad ticketing right there!

    • goodgracious says:

      Back in the day people didn’t think that 80 mph down the mountain was smart either.

  6. sargewillis says:

    Hey, don’t complain, every ticket is a little less off your taxes.

  7. sargewillis says:

    And thanks Sheriff Roper, we really like to keep up on what’s happening in our county.

  8. Selfsuffient1 says:

    Due to the fact that the most we have to fear in this county is traffic stops and abandoned vehicle I doubt the sherrifs dept needs the inflated budget they are asking for

  9. sargewillis says:

    Did you ever think it is because of the Sheriff’s department that “the most we have to fear in this county is traffic stops and abandoned vehicle”, just saying.

    • My exact thoughts!!!! Seems to me they are doing a great job if they can spend that amount of time on traffic stops!

    • Did you ever think that because of the citizens of this county that’s the most we have to fear? I’m thankful to live in a place where the majority of us are good people who are honest, hard-working, and would rather help someone out than hurt them. Bad people commit crimes whether the police are there to stop them or not! Just saying.

  10. Sunshine says:

    Thanks Sheriff Roper and CDN! Glad to have this report back.

    Traffic stops remind not only the individual stopped but put a quick visual on those passing to check themselves. I’ve had many “blowing” by me to see the blue lights and they adjust to safer speed.

    I say, keep up the good work. To those speeding, you should have left sooner.

    The law is for everyone and saves lives…maybe my kids and grandkids…maybe yours…

    • been here a long time says:

      If you don’t speed, you don’t get a ticket. It’s as simple as that. Speed kills, just ask any rescue person who has to get a person out who have wrapped themselves around a tree, guard rail, etc.

    • Yup!!! And people complain about how bad Rt 7 is now. Can you imagine what it would be like if there was no threat of being pulled over? I imagine this is calm compared to what it would be like if that were the case!

      • Kim, That has been the case for years. Little or no police on Rt. 7 in Clark county. I believe that is why there are so many tickets now. Everyone was still thinking the raceway was still not being policed.

        • I think now the sheriffs office has deputys that are simply on traffic patrol. That was very much needed.

  11. virginiacop says:

    That’s like saying Mayberry had a low crime rate because of Andy Griffith.

  12. sargewillis says:

    Well Andy did keep order in Mayberry,, and the bullets.. LOL

  13. 160 ish traffic stops average of $180.00 per stop = almost $29000 not bad for two weeks

    $60 court cost and $6 per mile per hour over posted speed @ average of 20mph over posted.

    could be a bit more with posible other tickets issued… ya it’s fuzzy math.

  14. Clarke County Annie says:

    And the life our two they may have saved…priceless

  15. CC resident says:

    Maybe they should focus more on the houses/farms that are having their stuff stolen instead of the traffic stops!

  16. george fox says:

    Um, does all the revenue from traffic fines really go to the county? Facts, please.

  17. Clarke County Annie says:

    The information on traffic fine revenue would be an interesting tidbit…most likely, it would be quite revealing as to the amount that does not stay within the county with exception of administration costs.

    In Clarke’s website the following statistics on Sheriffs News & Notes:
    Traffic Stops from 2010 to 2011 were up 287 (less than one a day)
    MV Accidents with Personal Injury in same years was down by 66

    My perception is that correlation proves that their speed limit enforcement definitely has reduced the severe accidents – thereby saving lives and debilitating injuries. Like “been here a long time” stated in earlier post: If you don’t speed, you don’t get a ticket. Words to “live” by?

    I hope Sheriff Roper and CDN continue this feature.
