ORO VALLEY, Ariz. - The Oro Valley Police Department's High Visibility Enforcement (HiVE) operation was put in use on October 2, from the intersections of Oracle and Magee, and Oracle and Suffolk.
There were 47 traffic stops within the first day of HiVE. Out of those 47 stops, 28 of them were for moving violations, which included running a red light, speeding, or failure to yield. In addition, 12 of the drivers were cited for non-moving violations, such as proof of insurance or expired registration. All together 32 drivers got a written warning.
In order to raise awareness and reduce the amount of accidents, the Oro Valley Police Department will continue to use HiVE over the next 90 days. Dates, times, and locations, will be told in advance when the OVPD puts HiVE in use.
