Salem police adopt "no tolerance" policy for Super Cruise weekend

Posted: Updated:
SALEM, Ohio -
The Salem Police  Chief J.T. Panezott says his department will be enforcing a "No Tolerance" policy during the Super Cruise, which begins this week.

Thousands of car enthusiasts are expected to attend the event, which runs Thursday through Saturday. The Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Columbiana County Sheriff's Department will be helping Salem police crack down on on violations such as peeling tires, reckless operation, speeding, public intoxication and open containers. 
 
Chief Panezott is asking everyone to remember that the weekend is a family event, and that there will be many people out watching the cars.

The Chief says that the city curfew will remain in effect for the weekend. Children ages 15 years old and under, not accompanied by an adult must be off the streets by 10:00 p.m. Thursday evening, and by 11:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Sixteen and 17 year olds must be home by midnight on Thursday, and 1:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday. The department warns that anyone out past curfew must be with a parent or guardian. That does not include an 18 year old friend.

The Chief says anyone planning to travel through Salem during the weekend should expect traffic delays. Drivers should anticipate congestion along State Street, and can use the State Route 45/62 bypass on the west side of town or East 3rd Street on the east side.
