The Walhalla police chief says there are good reasons why his officers have begun to write additional citations. For one, Chief Ronald Wilbanks says, Walhalla of late has been plagued by drivers running red lights. And Sgt. Aaron Alexander says beginning tonight you’ll see Walhalla officers through out the city conducting license checkpoints. According to Alexander, the effort which begins a week before the start of the Memorial Day weekend is an effort to curb some of Walhalla’s instances of reckless driving, speeding and accidents. And the police will be looking to see if all motorists are wearing their seatbelts.
