DECLARATION OF RESTRICTED ROAD USE
Section 311.07 of the Ohio Revised Code authorized the Sheriff to restrict or close normal vehicular travel, excluding emergency and public safety vehicles, on the County and Township road of Holmes County, Ohio, during times of extreme weather or other emergency situation, so as not to interfere with those work vehicles and crews authorized to combat the emergency and promote public safety.
For a better understanding of the meaning of restricted normal vehicular travel, and emergency road closings, the following guidelines are set by the Sheriff of Holmes County;
There will be no enforcement with Level 1 or 2, unless that particular situation creates a condition that is unsafe to that vehicle or public travel upon that roadway.
There will be enforcement action taken for unnecessary vehicular travel for those found driving under a Level 3 warning, if that driving creates a safety concern or causes a risk of physical harm to authorized users of the roadway, or impedes the movement of those public safety vehicles needing to be on the roadway to combat the emergency weather conditions or to promote public safety. Persons wishing to practice their religion on their day of worship are not discouraged from doing so, but should take into consideration these warnings are for their safety and that of any emergency vehicle or road crew that may have to respond if a problem arises due to their driving.
