During the recent University of Arizona Police Department’s Community Awareness through Traffic Safety (CATS) educational program, UAPD made a total of 73 traffic contacts resulting in:

Warnings:       

·     Moving violations                   44

·     Non-moving violations            12

Citations:

·     Moving violations                   15

·     Non-moving violations              2

Mandatory Impounds:               1

 

While the CATS program is intended to be educational in nature, some violations were serious enough to warrant a citation being issued. One vehicle was impounded due to a driver license suspension.  By Arizona law (ARS 28-3511), a vehicle must be impounded when a person driving has a suspended or revoked license. 

These statistics were from deployments on November 8th and 15th. This was the last CATS deployment for the year, but others are planned for 2018. 

As the holidays are quickly approaching, please remember don’t drink and drive, use a designated driver. Don’t become a statistic.
