Sheriff's office to crack down on Holiday Island speeders
HOLIDAY ISLAND -- Speeders in Holiday Island had better watch out, as tickets will start being issued, said Carroll County Sheriff Bob Grudek.
"We've gotten a number of complaints from Holiday Island Drive and Country Club Drive about speeders," he said. "One individual was rear-ended pulling into his driveway on Holiday Island Drive."
Holiday Island Drive is the main drive in the retirement community and is located in a densely populated area, which includes the 18-hole golf course.
"We need to make people aware they need to be careful, especially in that area with the golf course, golfers and golf carts," Grudek said.
Most of the speed limits in Holiday Island are in the 25 mph or 35 mph range.
The sheriff's office has placed a mobile radar speed machine on Holiday Island Drive so drivers can see how fast they're going. The mobile unit is on loan from the Eureka Springs Police Department.
"We'll put it at different locations for a week," he said. "We're putting it out there for awareness. After a couple weeks, we'll start issuing citations."
