Cheyenne Police are catching more speeders in school zones.
In fact, in the month of October 91 tickets were given to drivers speeding in those areas. It's all a part of the police department's beefed up school zone enforcement put in place after two kids, at two different schools were hit by drivers.
The police department plans to continue sending extra officers to patrol school zones throughout the school year.
Cheyenne Police are still working on locating the two drivers in those school zone hit and runs. They say they've followed up on several tips, but none have been successful.
The first hit and run occurred at Heberd Elementary School back in September. A young boy was crossing the street at 5th and Seymour Avenue when he was hit by what witnesses say looked to be a light colored Cadillac. The driver is described as a black man with dreadlocks.
The second incident occurred just a few weeks later near Baggs Elementary School. A 12-year-old girl was crossing in the 3700 block of E. Pershing, when she too was hit by a vehicle speeding through the cross walk. Witnesses say they saw a white male, around 40-years-old driving a 1990's model black Dodge Dakota extended cab truck, hit the girl then leave the scene. The man is described as 5'8'', slim build with salt and pepper hair.
If you have any information pertaining to these two incidents, contact the Cheyenne Police Department at 307-637-6500 or 638-TIPS.
During October, the Police Department also wrote 10 tickets for speeding in a construction zone and cited 58 drivers for speeding elsewhere. According to the news release, 691 tickets were written in October for traffic violations.
