The Wheeling Police Department will be conducting enhanced enforcement in school zones, starting Wednesday, Aug. 22, and lasting through the first several weeks of school. Police will be stopping and ticketing drivers for the following violations: failure to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, violations of school speed zones, talking on a cellphone in a school zone, passing a stopped school bus, and disobeying school crossing guards. The locations for extra patrol have been identified by the traffic unit as some of the top violation sites in Wheeling. Sgt. Paul Hardt of the Wheeling Police Department Traffic Unit said officers will use a variety of enforcement techniques with both marked and unmarked police vehicles.
