Park City police officers light up drivers without headlights
December 23, 2014
The Park City Police Department last week stopped an unusual number of vehicles with headlights not working or the headlights not turned on when it was dark.
Officers stopped at least eight drivers, police logs showed.
The cases included:
At 11:29 p.m. on Dec. 20, the police pulled over a driver at the intersection of Bonanza Drive and Deer Valley Drive, indicating in police logs that a headlight was "going out." The Police Department last week, meanwhile, stopped other drivers for equipment violations, including brake lights that were not working.
Phil Kirk, a police captain, said officers since early December have stepped up patrols for drunken drivers. They are pulling over people for equipment and moving violations and then checking whether the drivers are impaired, he said.
