Tickets this year nearly double rate of same time in 2010.
Cuyahoga Falls Police Capt. Jack Davis remembers when he joined the force in the 1980s, the Falls had a reputation as a strict enforcer of speed limits. “When I first started here, we were Ticket City,” Davis said. “I mean that was the reputation when I grew up here, and that was the reputation when I first started here, and we had kind of gotten away from that. I don’t say that we’re Ticket City again, but one of the things that we definitely wanted to do was increase our traffic (enforcement).” So far in 2011, as of June 30, Cuyahoga Falls police have issued 3,886 tickets that are being processed by the Mayor’s Court. More serious charges, including drunken driving and stolen vehicles, are processed in the Stow Municipal Court. Those …

Wind gusts of up to 35 mph Friday morning could cause the snow to drift and impact visibility while driving.

They're beautiful. They're a nuisance. They're graceful. They're driving hazard. Regardless of your opinion of the local white tail deer population, it pays to be looking out for them when you're on the road. Cuyahoga Falls drivers see their fair share of deer as they travel in or near the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and O'Neill Woods and Hampton Hills MetroParks. The Cuyahoga Falls Police Department doesn't keep records on vehicle-deer aacidents, and it's difficult to estimate how many occur each year, said Jamey Graham, spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife in Northeast Ohio. "I imagine many of them go unreported," she said. No Ohio law requires reporting the accident if the deer is uninjured or…

A student driver can be worse than any weather condition.
The words my son spoke yesterday morning are most parents' worst nightmare. "I'll drive you to work," he offered as he wanted to see his girlfriend who lived on the other side of Cuyahoga Falls. "There's a hundred feet of snow on the roads, visibility is zilch and the snow plows haven't been down the roads in this area yet," I said. "Don't you have school today?" "Called off. Too dangerous to walk to school," he said. My mind flashed back to when he was learning to drive. He seemed to be determined to find the car's top speed on State Route 8, and the car's slowest speed as we drove to Cuyahoga Falls High School for his classes. The only time he willingly slowed the car's speed was whenever we were passing the car dealerships out on Front …
