Police on the lookout for invalid driver's licenses and vehicle registrations

The Park City Police Department has been vigilant about up-to-date vehicle and driver’s licenses this week, reporting seven cases of expired registrations and licenses on Kearns Blvd., Park Ave., and Marsac Ave.

"I don’t think that there’s a crackdown," Park City Lt. Phil Kirk said. "It’s just regular checks our job is to determine whether or not their license and registration is valid."

Kirk noted that drivers can renew their licenses in Heber City at 69 North 600 West, and renew vehicle registrations at the Sheldon Richins Building at 6506 N. Landmark Dr.

Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
