SAPD: Over 90 Citations Issued Monday Morning


SAN ANGELO, TX — The San Angelo Police Department conducted two LIDAR Traffic Enforcement operations on Monday morning.

The first LIDAR was conducted in 11 school zones and resulted in a total of 35 citations and 7 warnings were issued by officers.

“The life of a child is priceless and not worth the risk by speeding through a school zone.  Children are more vulnerable than adults to being hit by a car — they tend to be less cautious than adults, are less visible due to their size, and they are less likely to survive a hit by a vehicle,” said SAPD in a statement.

  • Cell phone in School Zone: 2
  • Other/Misc. Violations: 5
  • No Insurance: 2
  • Speeding: 26
  • Warnings: 7

“When approaching a school zone, slow down.  The few seconds you may save speeding through a school zone is not worth the fine, but more importantly, it’s not worth the life of a child.”

Following the school zone enforcement, officers conducted a LIDAR operation in the 2220 block of West Houston Harte in the eastbound lanes.

A total of 60 citations and 25 warnings were issued.

  • Speeding: 52 (Highest speed: 94 mph.)
  • Other/Misc. Violations: 3
  • No Driver’s License: 2
  • No Insurance: 3
  • Warnings: 18
