BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (AP) - Bluefield City Police say they made 900 traffic stops in May.

The Bluefield Daily Telegraph (http://bit.ly/1FKcqNY ) reports police issued 601 warnings and wrote 299 tickets. Bluefield city manager Dane Rideout says officers aren’t just looking for speeders, but also drivers who fail to use seat belts, drivers who are texting or talking on cell phones and defective equipment.

Bluefield Police Chief D.M. Dillow says changing the schedule to 12-hour shifts has brought more manpower out into the city to patrol.
